“Therefore, behold, I will allure her and lead her to the wilderness, and speak to her tenderly.” – Hosea 2:14
More than ever we seek God in the wilderness, when surrounded by this culture of death.
During this period, 6 March – 18th April, I would ask you make a small sacrifice to support prayers for Ann Furedi (Head of BPAS) and all the councillors of Richmond who could affect the laws on buffer zones at the clinic. I will be avoiding desserts for the whole of Lent and only drinking water.
I will also, with the support of your prayers, be completing a painting to build up the Culture of Life. The painting (concept sketches above) will show a married couple and their small infant, on their marriage bed symbolised as a Eucharistic altar. It is inspired by the lines of Genesis “male and female he created them”… “God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply.” More than ever it seems, this message is needed by our world. I will be sharing my artwork and thoughts during Lent as I also work on this project! Let the journey begin!
