Dice Cardoza y Aragón-
Federico Su vida como pintor, escultor, su vida entera, ha sido honesta y ejemplar. Ha realizado tanto como ha querido. y viene lo dicho por Ramain Rolland a propósito de Handel-  Es como un Océano inmenso al que todos los ríos del Universo no podrían calmar la sed ni turbar la serenidad-

Federico Cantú 1907-1989

Easter, also called Pascha (Greek/Latin) or Resurrection Sunday,is a festival and holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, described in the New Testament as having occurred on the third day of his burial after his crucifixion by the Romans at Calvary c. 30 AD
Easter and the holidays that are related to it are moveable feasts which do not fall on a fixed date in the Gregorian or Julian calendars which follow only the cycle of the sun; rather, its date is determined on a lunisolar calendar similar to the Hebrew calendar. The First Council of Nicaea (325) established two rules, independence of the Jewish calendar and worldwide uniformity, which were the only rules for Easter explicitly laid down by the council. No details for the computation were specified; these were worked out in practice, a process that took centuries and generated a number of controversies. It has come to be the first Sunday after the ecclesiastical full moon that occurs on or soonest after 21 March,but calculations vary.

Easter is linked to the Jewish Passover by much of its symbolism, as well as by its position in the calendar. In many languages, the words for "Easter" and "Passover" are identical or very similar. Easter customs vary across the Christian world, and include sunrise services, exclaiming the Paschal greeting, clipping the church

Federico Cantú 1907-1989

According to the Book of Exodus, Moses was born in a time when his people, the Israelites, an enslaved minority, were increasing in numbers and the Egyptian Pharaoh was worried that they might ally themselves with Egypt's enemies.Moses' Hebrew mother, Jochebed, secretly hid him when the Pharaoh ordered all newborn Hebrew boys to be killed in order to reduce the population of the Israelites. Through the Pharaoh's daughter (identified as Queen Bithia in the Midrash), the child was adopted as a foundling from the Nile river and grew up with the Egyptian royal family. After killing an Egyptian slavemaster (because the slavemaster was smiting a Hebrew to death), Moses fled across the Red Sea to Midian, where he encountered The Angel of the Lord,speaking to him from within a burning bush on Mount Horeb (which he regarded as the Mountain of God).

God sent Moses back to Egypt to demand the release of the Israelites from slavery. Moses said that he could not speak with assurance or eloquence, so God allowed Aaron, his brother, to become his spokesperson. After the Ten Plagues, Moses led the Exodus of the Israelites out of Egypt and across the Red Sea, after which they based themselves at Mount Sinai, where Moses received the Ten Commandments. After 40 years of wandering in the desert, Moses died within sight of the Promised Land on Mount Nebo.

Federico Cantú


Trabaja indistintamente los temas bíblicos como los nacionales
En 1958 se da a la tarea de trabajar la capilla de los Misionero de Guadalupe
Y paralelamente los primeros trazos de lo que ahora conocemos como ;a maternidad del IMSS
Con ese carácter sarcástico que lo caracterizaba y muy a doc a este trazo decía

“ las viejitas se enojan con migo respecto a la madona del IMSS, me dicen- por lo menos le hubiera puesto un San José-“
