Journey to Joy a Spiritual Pilgrimage through Drawing and painting
October 4th to October 24th, 2014
It is worth pondering that joy is experienced where mystery is encountered. The root of our English word mystery is in the Greek mysterion: divine revelation. For Christians we understand the Sacraments (sacramentum being the Latin translation of mysterion) of our faith to be the outward and visible signs of inward and spiritual grace. How fitting that art be reclaimed as a vessel and conduit for experiencing joy, for encountering mystery.
May we all accept Toole’s invitation to accompany her on her journey and in doing so join her on our collective pilgrimage.
