The Creed; After the sermon, the priest prays the Nicene Creed, kneeling down at the words “and was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary: and was made man”.

This is the summation of the Catholic Faith. Everything we believe summed up in a few short lines of prayer. From the nature of God as Trinity, to the death and Resurrection of Christ, to our belief in Baptism and life after death.

Surrounded by the soft pinks, whites, and gold of this altar, the Creed takes on a beloved nature. This is our faith, it doesn’t matter what the world believes, this is what we believe. When we say the Creed, we are home.

Surrounded by the angels and Sts. Peter and Paul we are among good company for both evangelizing and holding true to the Faith even unto martyrdom. And we aren’t even alone in grievous sin; Paul killed Christians and Peter denied Christ three times. But they both sought the forgiveness and mercy of God and never gave up the journey to God. And for that they won the crown of sanctity.


The church in this painting is St. Mary’s Oratory in Rockford, IL US. Painted as an illustration for Kimberly Fries’ book: Traditional Latin Mass: A Missal for Children found here: https://amzn.to/3FnasK0

(For the Latin Mass loving Catholics checking for Churches to go to, this church is run by the Institute of Christ the King and they celebrate only the Extraordinary Form of the Mass. 100% worth the visit.)

Your Impact

For every order, 10% of all proceeds will go to organizations who provide resources to at risk women before and after birth.

The first is The Pregnancy Care Center of Rockford. They area a local organization to me,  providing resources and care for free to women in crisis pregnancies, from ultrasounds to parenting classes to post abortion healing.

The second is the Sisters of Life, a newer religious community founded in 1991 in New York to promote the dignity of every human life. They have houses for women to come live with them during and after their pregnancy as they get back on their feet, as well as counseling for post abortion healing, and other missions.
