Description

Inspired by the massive statue of the Trinity in the Il Gesu church in Rome, this has become the cover for Ascension Press’ program “What We Believe” found here.

As part of the program I worked closely with the team to come up with each composition, and immediately the Il Gesu came up as the primary reference. 

The program is a Catechetical dive into the Faith, and our Faith is first and foremost Trinitarian, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Without understanding the Trinity, every other aspect of the Faith falls flat.

So we emphasized the triune nature of the Trinity.

It’s often said that the Spirit is the love between the Father and the Son and as such He takes center stage, rays spreading from that typical dove and forming a triangle between Himself and the Father and Son.

The bottom ray intercedes with the Father’s hand and points to the Son’s. The Father, looking both as priest and emperor, commands, speaking His Word upon the Earth, while the Son, the Word of God, holding His Cross, both intercedes with a petitioning hand and at the same time accepts with a receiving hand.

Divine Justice and Divine Mercy shown clear. Jesus as our one intercessor between man and God is clear. Three persons, one God. Clear.

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.
