"Behold this Heart which has so loved men
that it has spared Itself nothing,
even to exhausting and consuming Itself,
in order to testify Its love.”
~ Jesus to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque
O heavenly Patron, whose name I have the honor to bear, pray earnestly at all times to God for me; confirm me in the faith; strengthen me in virtue, defend me in the battle of life; so that, conquering the enemy of my soul, I may deserve to be rewarded with everlasting glory. Amen.
Patron, whose name I bear, be mindful of me before God. Pray for me that I may always live as I ought, that I may keep the faith and be victorious in the battle of life. Amen.
|I'm just an aspiring artist from the lovely Mitten State. I'm a Roman Catholic who loves the Faith and everything pertaining to it (especially its philosophy, theology and history!). Like everyone else, I have an insatiable thirst for the Three Great Transcendentals: the Good, the True, and the Beautiful. I make art because I simply enjoy doing it. Historical and theological themes and subjects are what fascinate me the most, and I think that the human figure in particular is one of inexhaustible beauty. The Incarnation of Our Lord, after all, changes everything. For that reason, I also love to depict Our Lord and Our Lady, because they are the summit of human perfection (being the New Adam and new Eve and all that. ) and therefore are my favorite subjects to depict.|
