Reflection on Art
Study this painting of King David. Note that the artist portrays him as wearing both a kingly crown and a humble shepherd’s scarf. He hasn’t forgotten where he came from, or who crowned him. Imagine our friend David, the author of Psalm 147, singing in this very painting, while he looks upward to the heavens, “Praise the Lord, for He is good; sing praise to our God, for He is gracious; it is fitting to praise Him…He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. He tells the number of the stars; He calls each by name.”
What is your soul singing today?

A clear lesson shared today helps us overcome what burdens us spiritually and emotionally when we have a conversation with God. He is here always to listen to what is sad or painful for us to talk about. His great love to forgive us pushes us on to become stronger in mind, spirit and soul. Through God’s gift of fortitude to us we can defeat our weakness to sin. Fortitude will lead us to a open and loving conversation with Him. The artwork of King David reminds me no matter where we go on our journey in life remember our humble beginnings and our original innocence that was given to us as a gift. Our 33 day Sacred Heart Consecration has given me fortitude because aside of the personal stories of love and family it also promotes an exercise using reason, intellect and faith. Words used in St. John Paul 11 writings which all leads to truth.
