HAPPY and BLESSED
NEW YEAR to ALL
Solemnity of the Mother of God
Illustrations of the various titles for Jesus (Root of Jesse, Morning Star, Key of David, Alpha and Omega) adorn the corners of this piece so rich in detail and buzzing with activity. Some of your image will be blocked but this had to be enlarged as much as possible to show the detail. Fortunately the great work of this modest German Redemptorist Brother is enjoying a renaissance.
Some changes are coming to this blog with the arrvial of the New Year. Stay tuned!
