Saint Vader

This icon came to my attention via Unvirtuous Abbey on Facebook. Star Wars episodes I-VI are profoundly about redemption, about a man who turns to evil in order to try to hold on to someone he loves, ends up harming that person in the process, and eventually is helped to find his way back from the darkness by his son. And so a depiction of St. Vader – or should it be St. Skywalker? – seems highly appropriate.
