    Brilliant art and words for meditation on the feminine spirit - not for women only!

    Janet McKenzie's art will speak to each of us differently as we meditate on her incredibly diverse interpretations of Mary, the child Jesus and the Holy Family. She uses Asian, Native American, Hispanic, African and Mid-eastern cultures in demonstrating the universality of the gift of Jesus to our world.

    Using only the art as focus for contemplative prayer is one way to consider this beautiful volume. McKenzie's expressions on the face of the child Jesus, for instance, seem to have him looking directly at me - bringing me into the family portrayed in the painting. Looks reflected to me may be ones of compassion, searching and questioning, or even more knowing gazes that nothing in my life is hidden from him. The images of Mary as a single mother or with husband illuminate to me the pain and joy of motherhood throughout time and in all cultures.

    Essays, poems and reflections accompanying each picture are written by women: authors, theologians, lay ministers, social justice workers and a mother of a victim of 9/11. They add other dimensions to times of prayer and meditation using this volume. The images truly manifest the Incarnation of Christ in today's world.
