Stained glass, sculpture, even a simple holy card can draw us more deeply into God’s presence. Our partner, Catholic News Service, offers several reflections and catechesis on the power of images to enhance our prayer and worship.
In “lectio divina,” or spiritual reading, sacred images can serve as “visual texts” through which we can discern the divine in our hearts.
When an American pastor is posted to a parish in the former Soviet Union, his painting hobby becomes a vital tool in learning how to understand and minister to his new flock.
The sacred and the structural must work together to encourage participation in the liturgy, as demonstrated by the open style of St. John’s Abbey and University Church in Collegeville, Minnesota.
