Friends - I'll be gone
Love to all.
IMAGO SACRA MILLE GRATIARUM VALET. ("A holy picture is worth a thousand graces")................... This blog is a means to show some of my holy card collection along with some interesting thoughts and inspirations. "....artists have the privilege in the Church and throughout history, to open up so that people can see the mystery of God. The artist speaks, not just literally, but symbolically. Visual images, if well done, can move us. That's a ministry." Quote from Brother Michael Moran, C.P
"Christ comes to visit me in the Holy Eucharist
I repay the visit by going to find Him in the poor."
Blessed PierGiorgio Frassati,
Italian, Dominican Tertiary,
"The good shepherd goes looking for the one sheep, and on finding it 'rejoices more over it than over the ninety-nine.' God's love does not reach out to us generically, but individually, one by one. Our love should do the same.
Who is that one sheep God wants me to find today?"
MY DAILY VISITOR, November/December 2007
[On the scroll held by Jesus:]
"Go into my vineyard."
[Below the image:]
"May the Lord Almighty direct our days and our actions in His peace."
The first quotation consists of words that everyone will recognize as coming from a parable in the Gospel.
The second quotation consists of the words of a blessing that was used at the end of a former "hour" of the Divine Office (called "Prime").
