"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

For all the iconographers who read this blog...

Ukranian egg mosaic.
.
Astonishing isn't it?  The mosaic is comprised of 15,000 individual eggs, painted in the traditional Ukranian style and then assembled by Ukranian artist Oksana Mass to create the icon of the Mother of God.  For more photos and details, go to James Mary Evans' blog: Orate Fratres.

  2. Personally, I could live without music, TV, and most food but not without art.

    It's one of the true joys in a world that totally sucks.
