Illuminated Manuscripts

Keep the joy of loving the poor and share this joy with all you meet. Remember, works of love are works of peace. God bless you.-Mother Teresa
If you don't have children, you might not know of the fabulous children's author/ illustrator Demi. Our local library carries many of her books and my children, as well as my husband and I, adore them all. I just checked out her book 'Mother Teresa.' It is a wonderful introduction to this holy woman and her work. My favorite part though are Demi's illustrations. They are vivid, colorful and in some instances almost sacred. You can find examples here, although viewing them online doesn't do the art justice.
Be sure to check out her other books on Jesus, Mary, St. Nicholas and Christmas. You can find them all on Amazon, however for the record please purchase through one of the small, used booksellers if you are able.

The fruit of Silence is Prayer
The fruit of Prayer is Faith
The fruit of Fatih is Love
The fruit of Love is Service
The fruit of Service is Peace
-Mother Teresa
