There is a beautiful though modern art piece which hangs over the central altar at the Benedictine Abbey of St Gregory the Great, Portsmouth, Rhode Island. As with all art in order to be formed by it, to be educated by it, you have to listen in silence. Now some art is vacuous. This piece at the Abbey is anything but empty of meaning. When I sit in prayer before this piece of art I am filled with amazement of the beauty of the Most Holy Trinity, the Crucifixion of the Lord, and the wide horizons of the theological virtues come which come alive in a myriad of ways.

I offer this piece for your consideration.
