a painting by
LINDA MCcRAY | Professor + Painter
With oil of gladness, for sackcloth and frieze
And the ever-fretting shirt of punishment
Give myrrhy-threaded golden folds of ease.
Your scarce-sheathed bones are weary of being bent:
Lo, God shall strengthen all the feeble knees.
As good stewards of all our gifts, including sacred grounds, we are called to protect, replenish and cultivate them.
As a Catholic artist, I believe that God’s kingdom is on heaven and earth, in darkness and light. God replenishes us with the Word. As disciples, we are to be Jesus to others and spread His love to everyone.
