I thought it was time to start (trying) to be creative again and so I am starting with three new sets of images for Ash Wednesday.
Wishing you all the best!
All I know is that I don’t know.
In this time of pandemic, where fear and uncertainty lie at every turn, it is hard to know what to believe.
And the danger we all face is that of thinking we know… that we somehow absolutely know the answer to the problem.
But we are a broken people… people who in our desire to be made whole will grab onto any possible answer out there, even it has only has a shred of credibility or “truth.”
It’s as if we fit that one small piece of truth into the puzzle and claim "done" only to find out that if we were to step back and look at the full puzzle we are still only 20% complete. There is so much more left to know.
All I do know right now is that I don’t know and I can’t know it all because that is what faith is about.
Believing even when you can't see the entire puzzle.
So keep praying
Keep trusting in the One who can give us the answers that we need.
The quick answer?
I'm still here.
I'm just working .... a lot.
I plan to keep this gralog up and running and I do hope to come back and post new designs someday.
In the meantime, if you look to the right under "Categories" you can search for a specific theme which you may be looking for.
By using the main menu pull downs at the top - you can find Facebook Covers for the liturgical seasons.
I am still on facebook - so come find me! God Bless and keep sharing your faith in a world that desperately needs the Good News.
Just as we hit the middle of Advent, something special occurs starting on December 17 and goes for the next seven days. The O Antiphons! I have created 7 shareable images, one to share for each O Antiphon.
Below is a little background on this tradition:
The O Antiphons refer to the seven antiphons that are prayed immediately before the Magnificat during Vespers of the Liturgy of the Hours (or the Divine Office). Each antiphon begins with the exclamation “O”, thus earning their popular name of the “O Antiphons.” Originally written in Latin around the seventh or eighth centuries, these special antiphons are verses extracted from the Old Testament prophet Isaiah that are titles for the Messiah.
These seven names or titles are:
Dec. 17 - O’ Sapientia (meaning O Wisdom), from Isaiah 11:2-3.
Dec. 18 - O’ Adonai (O Leader/Ruler), Isaiah 11:4-5 and 33:22.
Dec. 19 - O’ Radix (O Root of Jesse), Isaiah 11:1.
Dec. 20 - O’ Clavis (O Key of David), Isaiah 22:22.
Dec. 21 - O’ Oriens (O Radiant Dawn), Isaiah 9:1.
Dec. 22- O’ Rex Gentium (O King of the Nations), Isaiah 2:4.
Dec. 23- - O’ Emmanuel (O God with Us), Isaiah 7:14.
In response to all of the violence and troubling events in our world.... here are 10 images that share the Hope found in our Lord.
By special request from Kathi T. on facebook - here are some images for Respect Life Month, the month of October. You can read more about this intiative on the USCCB website.
