As a mother of five children, my support for the pro- life movement has always been driven by feelings of thankfulness and praise for the gift of life that I have been given. When Father X visited my studio, it was to begin a process of revealing to himself and to you, the reader, through his Meditations, his deep journey into loss and his heartfelt prayers for forgiveness and peace. It is our hope that through this small volume of Meditations and artwork others may also begin this journey with us.
