A Virtual Gallery for the 150th anniversary of the birth of St Thérèse of Lisieux


Kathy Twist OCDS writes:

For the past two years, I have been fortunate enough to become a student on the Spiritual Direction Training Programme (Carmelite Spirituality) run from Boar's Hill. Lacking the God-given conviction that I should, or even could be a Spiritual Director, I listened eagerly to the Holy Spirit in order to learn my response to the spiritual gifts on offer.

His inspiration came simply and happily, I would respond with paintings and poetry, cutting a straight path to the heart of the subject; I would be on a path of simplicity like Therese herself and, for me, all my notes (in picture-form ) would bring back the deepest essence of lectures and books.

The idea reminds me of the little old church in the village where I went to school. At a certain point along the outside wall, there was an easily-missed opening like a small, narrow window without glass. If one knelt or bent low, one could squint inside and view, at an angle, the high altar and nothing else. This was the old 'leper-squint' where the shunned and infectious once came to be present at Holy Mass. They saw the Consecration from a different angle, but they saw it all the same.
