Sr. Armanda's BOOK is out!

We're thrilled to present a brand new book by our very own Sr. Armanda! Facing the Apostle: Paul's Image in Art is an inspiring meditation on the person and theological vision of the great Apostle. The book, which features some wonderful full color masterpieces, was just released and is now available for purchase.

From the book's foreword by Michael Morris, O.P.:

Starting with a quotation from Sacred Scripture, [Sr. Armanda] weaves biography, formal analysis, aesthetics, theology, history, and legend together in her chapters. Then each study is completed with a prayer that raises the wealth of information up to the spiritual plane.
Sr. Armanda will be giving a presentation on her new book here in our Center on Wednesday, January 28, at 7:00 p.m. Look for more information to follow shortly!
