A Marian Moment

What’s an “immaculate conception” anyway? You’ve probably heard that Mary was “conceived without sin” and that she’s “full of grace”. These terms mean that Mary was prevented from being born with or developing a sinful nature. Her sinlessness allowed her to pass on to Jesus a sinless humanity. Mary’s conception paved the way for the Incarnation!

Pop in Print

Give Us This Day illustrationMy pop-tacular illustration is featured in the December issue of Give Us This Day, a user-friendly prayer magazine geared toward modern Catholics. I’m in good company here, as one of the people involved with the magazine is Fr. James Martin, a fierce advocate for LGBT Catholics.

My art brings some pop to the readings for the Feast of the Immaculate Conception — truly an honor! Pick up your copy, and check me out on page 86.
