Simplicity – The Freedom of Letting Go by Richard Rohr
St Francis’s ancient call to the simple life of freedom and happiness, as seen by America’s foremost Franciscan. Richard Rohr shows you how to:
Recognize your radical dependence on others
Understand why less is more
Break through to contemplation
Embrace a deeper spiritual freedom
“Rohr’s kind of contemplation is an adventure in the wilderness, letting God call me by name and take me to a deeper place of peace that the world cannot give.”St. Anthony Messenger
Praise to You Lord Jesus Christ
King of endless Glory.
Background: I have always loved this refrain as it so joyous and bold! In the artwork I have shown aspects of the life of Christ, His baptism, teaching, sacrifice and upbringing (according the Jewish laws). There is also symbolism representing Gods' promises and attributes of Jesus.

There is a traditional saying of ancient wisdom: 'A threshold is a sacred thing. In some places of the world, in some traditional cultures and in monastic life, this is still remembered. It is something, however, that we often forget today. To take time to pause at a threshold - be it a place, or a moment between one action and the next - is to show reverence for the handling of space and time, and respect for those who we meet. Pausing allows us to let go of all the demands and expectations of the previous activity, and to prepare for the encounter with another. Esther de Waal explores what this ancient wisdom has to teach us about our public lives in the world today.
Lord Jesus show me Your way
Background: Artist Mary Fleeson comments...'This piece was inspired by the lighthouse beam I see each night. It cuts through the darkness like a sword, like the word of God. It is a guide, a warning, a comfort and a reassurance.'
