  • St. Francis among the houseplants. We love lugging stuff from the garden into the house to create an indoor-outdoor feeling, especially in winter. We draw the line at squirrels though. Those have to stay outside. 🙃 #chicoca #chicoguys #stfrancis #outdoorstuffinside

  • 🌹“Mother Maria under the Cross - of the Convent of Cortona cells – Incandescent”…
I found Le Celle to be one of the pleasant surprises in and around Cortona. The tiny cells built into the side of the mountain with a stream descending along the structural edge creates a surreal and picturesque vision of Saint Francis image of God and nature. The convent is able to offer lodgings to those contemplating a vocational life. As I was exiting through the gates of the Convent, I noticed atop the embankment of the single dirt road leading there… a statue of Mother Mary. She stood majestically evoking a serene peacefulness over the Convent, its pilgrims, and visitors. The Madonna had rosaries swaying from her hand, and about 10 feet away stood a Cross surrounded by blooming roses. My mission was to capture a photograph containing all the elements of Mary, the Cross, roses, the famous Cypress trees of Italy, and the dramatic blue skies…it took a very creative epiphany or perhaps a miracle. I knelt down on the edge of the rocky dirt road below the embankment as if I was in a fox hole, and peering upward, was able to contain all the elements in the frame of the image. Surprising to me, it actually worked, and the statue of the Madonna grew a distinct but faint smile watching the antics of a silly but grateful photographer.

  • Handsome boy had a mishap today that landed us in the ER after lunch at @cbpottshighlandsranch. When he was about 1.5-2 years old nursemaids elbow was extremely common for him to the point where the paramedics at the hospital taught me how to reset his elbow. Well we haven’t had any issues for 2 years so I thought we were good. Nope 🤷🏼‍♀️. He couldn’t fight me when he was 2, but he can now so i was unable to reset it for him. 3 xrays and some fentanyl later we have a back to normal 4 year old rambunctious boy. Thank you all who reached out worried about our boy. We love you and appreciate you. •

  • St. Francis • Region 2 Silver Gloves Tournament • Cleveland • Ohio • 2020 • #cleveland • #stfrancis  #silverglovestournament #ohio • I was crazy emotional today before I when to my first boxing match. Fear, anxiety, stress, excitement…it’s all part of the reason we fight, make art or whatever. Somehow, i forgot that emotions are the reason why we love fighting (or why we love anything). The risk of losing, the glory of winning–it’s why we enjoy competing!

  • Happy Fiesta!
Viva Pit Señor! Sto. Niño!
January 19, 2020

Devotion to the Santo Niño (Holy Child), an image of Jesus as a small boy typically dressed as a king, is a mainstay of Philippine Catholic life. Devotions to him are part of every parish’s life, and in some places a major feast of the year. Some image of Santo Niño is found in almost every Filipino home, because Filipinos believe that the Santo Niño is their protector and has the power to grant and answer their prayers.

The oldest and most popular Santo Niño image is the Santo Niño of Cebu. That image is particularly revered by Cebuanos, people from the region in and around the city of Cebu, where the Spaniards set up the first colonial capital. But Santo Niño of Cebu devotion has spread beyond that region, and images of it are a common sight in homes and shops around the country and in the Filipino diaspora.

In the 21st century, this level of devotion to an image of a boy Jesus is unique to the Philippines.1 In Cebu, devotion to the Santo Niño reaches a fever pitch early in January, when crowds flock to the basilica that houses it, and the city and its harbor are taken over for days by processions, colorful parades and other celebrations. The name of that feast, Sinulog, refers to a ritual dance inspired by and performed before the Santo Niño. In recent years the events have drawn 1.5 to 3 million participants in a city of fewer than 900,000 people, making Cebu’s celebration one of the largest annual events in the Catholic world.

Other cities in the Philippines, including Malolos, Bustos, Kalibo, Tacloban, Panay and Bacolod, have their own particular images of the Santo Niño, many dating back to the 16th century. Each of these also has its own feast, as does Manila’s Tondo church, which houses an image known as Santo Niño de Tondo brought to the country in 1572.

  • Happy feast of St Francis! One of my favorite St Francis stories is one I heard a CFR friar tell a long time ago. He said that when Francis was sitting in the little broken down church that he was working to rebuild, he would stare at the crucifix and say, “Who are you and who am I? Who are you and who am I?” ⁣
⁣
I’ve always felt that was so powerful for many reasons, and hearing that story made me realize that I needed to find the answer to both of those questions. At the time, I was making big changes in my life and about to move out of a Catholic  missionary community in the inner city after living and serving there for about ten years. ⁣
⁣
I was so afraid, but also excited to start on a new adventure. I wrote a song about it, and part  of it goes like this: ⁣
⁣
“Packing up this house of memories⁣
Packing up this house of memories ⁣
and I’m wondering who I really am...⁣
with each box I pack a part of me ⁣
with each box I pack a part of me ⁣
And I’m wondering who I’m gonna be ⁣
when I leave this place. ⁣
Well,  who are You? Who am I? ⁣
I know eventually I’m gonna find it ⁣
Will I let these changes ⁣
Shake the foundation ⁣
Of everything I swear that I believe in?” ⁣
⁣
What I’ve learned and continue to learn throughout my life is that coming to know who God is and who I am is a lifelong journey. God allows our foundation to be shaken from time to time, and in the shaking we often learn true compassion and empathy for others, and how to be an ally to the marginalized. (PSA for Buffalo Catholics: the “marginalized” are not corrupt bishops in power. Just in case a certain few of you needed that little reminder). Francis learned this in deeply profound ways, and his life reflected that in a way that made people see a reflection of who God is: justice and mercy, wild and free, lion and lamb. A lover of the poor, a friend even to the animals. How amazing is that? ⁣
⁣
ps Here’s to continuing my line of children’s saints and heroes that I began back in March. You can scroll way back to find St Gianna and Our Lady of Fatima :) #stfrancis #stfrancisofassisi #franciscan #kidlitart #henrinouwensociety #childrensillustrator #bissisterhood

  • Today is the Feast Day for St Francis of Assisi. I grew up with grden statues and wall hangings with St Francis on them Aroha ND my home. I always felt he was the most earth loving and veritably pagan saint of all of them and while my own journeys took me elsewhere I have always had a place in my heart for this figure. I painted this for my parents as a gift for their 40th wedding anniversary.
