Wednesday 3rd June - Icon of the Day

‘Why indeed must God be a noun? Why not a verb… the most active and dynamic of all?’

(Mary Daly)

The American artist captures magnificently the drama of Niagara Falls, one of his country's - indeed, the world’s - most famous landmarks. This monumental painting (measuring just over 2.5 m by 2.2 m) is based on a drawing Church made at Niagara in July 1856 and on a sepia photograph touched with colour.


In St Mary’s prayer cycle for June 2020, today we pray for all those looking out for and assisting others, including those supporting the work of HANDS locally.
