Beyond words and beyond the hustle and bustle of our lives, an image of a Holy subject opens the door to a place of reflection. That is why Christian homes should be filled with images of Jesus, Mary, the saints or people in prayer. Such artwork serves as a reminder to seek silence and turn our lives over to God.
Crucifixes & Crosses
As an artist I also know that the process of creating, no matter how skilled you are, can be very healing. I encourage my children and their classmates to create. The process of using art materials is a way to focus, release feelings and get in touch with Spirit. God flows through our hands when we surrender to Him through the process of creating.
Upcoming articles on these pages will include specific projects families can do together, stories about how art can heal, and essays on the Spirit of creativity.

2. Madonna artwork and tote bags:
Mother Mary, Watch over me as I raise my children. It is not an easy job. No matter how much I want to protect them and direct them, the children are destined to go their own way. I know they have a path that I can't envision. And they will have to fall many times in order to learn. Guide me to find that balance between guiding and letting go. Watch over this family. -Judith Costello
