(RCR) Mark Judge–The Faith of Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol was a devout Catholic.

That’s a weird sounding sentence, isn’t it? It doesn’t say that Warhol — the hipster icon, godfather of Pop Art, and gay trailblazer — was a lapsed Catholic. Or an indifferent Catholic. Or ironic Catholic.

It says that Warhol was a devout Catholic. He prayed and went to Mass. He volunteered in a soup kitchen. Andy Warhol was a believer.

I was reminded of Warhol’s Catholicism recently when I was witness to two supposedly incongruous exhibits.

Read it all.

  1. Terry Tee says:

    Warhol left Mass at the kiss of peace and did not receive communion. Not that this diminishes his underlying faithfulness.

  2. St. Jimbob of the Apokalypse says:

    Well, Terry, if Warhol was all that faithful, he would have realized that missing the Eucharist was missing out on Christ himself.. He might have been a regular Mass attendee, but without the Eucharist, he’s in dire need of spiritual sustenance. I believe Jesus said something about this..
