For our community prayer this week, I used several Scripture passages as well as a beautiful painting. Sieger Koder is an amazing artist who has painted some wonderful Biblical scenes. The scene that I used was entitled “Amen” and is published in the book, The Folly of God, published by the Daughters of St. Paul in England, and available in the U.S. as well as at www.pauline.org. (I highly recommend the book as a wonderful way to pray the Stations of the Cross.)
The painting “Amen,” which you can see if you follow that link, inspired some very profound reflections from the sisters with regard to how we can be united to Christ in our sufferings.
