It felt good to paint again today at last. It’s been weeks since I last picked up a paintbrush. I am working on the icon of the Annunciation, which I began several months ago.
Painting this image, with the the Christ Child “shown” in the womb of Mary, brings to my mind all of the recent blog-posts, conflicts and the controversy over abortion that an election year always intensifies.
I decided to dedicate my prayers as I work on this Holy Image to the unborn children in this country. I also pray for every woman who is considering an abortion this day, to allow the love of Jesus and the prayers of Mary, the angels, and all of the saints to turn her heart.
