I received my artwork from you today and I am THRILLED with how beautiful my prints are!!! (They are astounding!) Thank you for all the care you took in preparing them for shipping, they arrived in perfect condition!
I just received my order! Everything is even more beautifully than I thought it would be! The “HOLY FACE “ took my breath away just seeing on Johnette’s show. More spectacular in person! You are so gifted and so very blessed!
What a surprise the other day when we received the beautiful 8x10 print as you promised. My wife was ecstatic and we love the print and will hang it in a prominent place. We are so pleased to have met you and your husband and to be introduced to your lovely art. We tell everyone about it and hopefully you will continue to get more orders for your lovely work. We also look forward to your next local engagement.
I received my minis today! They were packaged so thoughtfully and wrapped so beautifully, it was so much fun to unwrap these two gifts to myself! Makes my heart and soul happy to have these in my home and one day to order more of your art. I first discovered your site on LinkedIn. So glad that I did! Thanking God for the sanctifying gift of art and beauty that he has given you!
It is in perfect condition! You packaged it perfectly to protect it. The artwork is more beautiful than I imagined it would be. It is breathtaking and I'm so thankful and blessed to have this in my home. I will be framing this and having it blessed.
Thank you for your wonderful ministry and I thank God for your tremendous talent and generosity in sharing it with us. Many blessings!
It is a powerful and beautiful image. This is the first birthday gift I will be giving my wife, as a married couple. Hopefully someday we can commission an original! Thanks for doing what you do. It is more important than you know.
A Reflection on how Our Lady wraps us in her mantle, bringing us close to her womb where Christ is. In this process, beauty comes out of the broken. She is the new Eve as you can see the white flower coming out of the bitten apple, symbolizing her mystical union with the Lord and how her Fiat allows for the mercy of Christ to Make all things new.
This image speaks of the profound gift that is being offered us: our Lord and great Lover. Our Lady, the new tabernacle, new Ark of the Covenant, the church, and the prime example of union with the Lord, presents us her son. In this moment heaven literally touches earth and all the angels praise God for such a gift. The host shows a glimpse of the face of Christ and His precious blood dripping out in reference to countless miraculous moments that have taken place over the centuries world wide, confirming this gift being given to you and me. Lord, the next time we receive you in Communion, we ask for the grace to be made ready for such a Divine gift. We ask for forgiveness for our apathy and unbelief, or any other ways that we have hurt you, our Love. We pray to see you in the host and wine and know your true presence. If my heart is struggling with unbelief, I give this to you, Jesus, and ask you to show me the truth; as you have said, “seek and you shall find.” We praise you and thank you for all that you are. Amen.
The evil one tries to tear the little ones from God's heart...the battle is real. He knows that they are POWERFUL because of their innocence and connection to the Lord.
I felt called to show St Rose in her younger years to recall what God can do in young hearts. If you know St Rose's story, it began with a beautiful connection to the Lord and her heart was won over by God. At a young age she chose to live for Christ. Jesus would even come to her and teach her how to read and write (which is happening in this painting). I believe Jesus comes to the little one's often but if we are not careful society will steal this time from them.
May we safeguard the young and allow them to become Saints for the Kingdom, may we cultivate in them a spirit of prayer and connection to the King of Kings. May we relish in the ways that they marvel at life and may we teach them how to reject the lies of the evil one so they may remain strong in God.
The surest way to a peaceful heart is through the Mercy of God. This painting, Misericordiae Invitatio, aims at pulling the viewer outside of time and drawing one in to see how we have responded personally to God’s Love, a choice of receptivity or rejection. In this work, one simultaneously sees the example of Adam and Eve’s separation and despair due to the rejection of God, The Father, while Mary, our Blessed Mother, is radiating harmony and union during the first moment of conception as she responds openly and trustingly to God’s invitation. Mary gives her fiat as Adam and Eve turn toward lies. Furthermore, as a result of grace, the dead tree from the fall is linked to the blooming tree that surrounds Mary ablaze. She and Christ are given to mankind as the new Adam and Eve for salvation history. This work is clear in sharing that God has a plan and Mary and Jesus are not a second thought in God’s salvation but a purposeful gift for all the fallen. A blue Iris that grows near to Adam’s gaze symbolizes the hope and a promise in love. Where we have attached ourselves to death and lies, hope and love still remain a gift offering. Thus, we are invited into God’s Mercy daily (Misericordiae Invitatio) where we too can be set ablaze upon entering into a deeper union with Christ, as Mary our Mother exemplifies.
“It is true that “the powers of death shall not prevail”, as the Lord assured (Mt 16:18), but this does not mean that we are exempt from trials and battles against the snares of the evil one.In this struggle the Archangel Michael stands alongside the Church to defend her against all the iniquities of the age, to help believers to resist the devil, who “prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour” (1 Peter 5:8).”
This battle against the devil which characterizes the Archangel Michael is still going on, because the devil is still alive and at work in the world. In fact, the evil that is in it, the disorder we see in society, the infidelity of man, the interior fragmentation of which he is a victim, are not merely the consequences of original sin, but also the effect of the dark and infesting activity of Satan, of this saboteur of man’s moral equilibrium.”
