This is a collection of some of my best photos featuring some of the things I enjoy: Church art & architecture, historic buildings, places and events, scenes of natural beauty, and various saints and sinners! In addition there are images from of my religious life as a Dominican friar.

The Mother of God & Her House

The Virgin Mary in this picture was also AI generated the original Mew Rho and Theta Upsilon (which stands for Meter Theou meaning "Mother of God,") was very unclear so it was heavily refurbished. The initial desire was to incorporate a sunset overlooking Jerusalem such that a bit of the Mediterranean was visible. However, that was very difficult to achieve, instead, the background comes from the House of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Ephesus. It was moved from Nazareth by angels for a reason I cannot recall. There have books published and studies done on this. Nevertheless, it provides something of a historical backdrop. The area near the Blessed Mother in the picture was lightened with yellow and the remainder of the image darkened with grey to draw attention to the heavenly depiction with a earthly background. Somehow it makes the image more majestic. Other minor corrections were applied as well.

More on Mary the Mother of God

The Immaculate of Heart of the Queen of Heaven & Earth

This image was made to emphasize Mary's motherly queenship.

This role is certainly described by the following quote from the Catechism of the Catholic Church: "In a wholly singular way she cooperated by her obedience, faith, hope, and burning charity in the Savior's work of restoring supernatural life to souls. For this reason she is a mother to us in the order of grace." CCC 968

Ecce Homo - John 3:16 

Desktop Background

SIC DEVS DILEXIT MUNDUM… “For God so loved the world...” Referencing why Christ looks the way He does in the painting, John 3:16

…PROPTER NOS HOMINES ET PROTPER NOS SALUTE… “...For us men and for our salvation...” This precedes the Incarnation in the Nicene Creed (when we bow). “Salute” is best translated as Health and Salvation referencing Jesus making us whole by His destruction. “For us men” references the supreme act of willing the good for all which was, the only act of our redemption a potentiality.

It is also worth noting that this is the "Ecce Homo" (Click for More on this) moment when Pilate presented Christ to the crowd after having Him scourged and this did not stop the crowd. It is however a key moment in which the love Christ has for us is on display, similar to the cross.

CCC 569 Jesus went up to Jerusalem voluntarily, knowing well that there he would die a violent death because of the opposition of sinners (cf. Heb 12:3).

CCC 571 The Paschal mystery of Christ's cross and Resurrection stands at the center of the Good News that the apostles, and the Church following them, are to proclaim to the world. God's saving plan was accomplished "once for all"313 by the redemptive death of his Son Jesus Christ.

Mary, Our Lady of the Lilies and Sorrows

This image demonstrates Mary's encounter with Christ's earthly mission embracing great joy (Christmas/Easter) and sorrow (Good Friday) which is the nature of loving in a corrupt world. Mary's embrace of Christ on each side signifies the relationship she has to Christ and His mission. She is the archtypoe of the Church in this way. Further in a unique way, Christ's love transfroms suffering, divinizing, as it were, human experience.

CCC 964 Mary's role in the Church is inseparable from her union with Christ and flows directly from it. "This union of the mother with the Son in the work of salvation is made manifest from the time of Christ's virginal conception up to his death";504 it is made manifest above all at the hour of his Passion:

Thus the Blessed Virgin advanced in her pilgrimage of faith, and faithfully persevered in her union with her Son unto the cross. There she stood, in keeping with the divine plan, enduring with her only begotten Son the intensity of his suffering, joining herself with his sacrifice in her mother's heart, and lovingly consenting to the immolation of this victim, born of her: to be given, by the same Christ Jesus dying on the cross, as a mother to his disciple, with these words: "Woman, behold your son."
