Virgin and Child, Tom Dusterberg

To overcome the world we must become children. To become children we must fold our consciousness upon the Divine Infant who is the center of our being; who is our being itself; and all that we are must be absorbed in Him; whatever remains of self must be the cradle in which he lies.

This is the answer to Herod in all times, the answer of St. Teresa of Lisieux in our time: ‘the little way of Spiritual Childhood’, which is the oneing of the soul with God, in the passion of the Infant Christ.”

Caryll Houselander, The Passion of the Infant Christ, (1941).

I saw your site with my art. You are welcome to use it but it might be good for you to let me know in that you have.

God bless your efforts

You are right. I should have asked your permission. I originally found your art on the University of Dayton site – I wanted to get people to your webpage – and did link to it but I was remiss in not asking your permission. Thank you for your generous comment. It is a beautiful painting!
