"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.

Our Lady, Mother of Divine Grace
July 23. Thus ends the octave of the Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel.
Image: Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, T. Nelson. !980's. Acrylic and gold leaf on panel.
I can't recall the exact date that I painted this image of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel with St.s John and Teresa, but it was sometime in the 1980's. At one time it was used for the cover of Soul magazine - both Spanish and English editions, and prints were subsequently sold through the World Apostolate of Fatima in New Jersey. The original is in the possession of a local Carmelite community of men.
