Overview

Using inspirational text and images, art expert Sister Wendy Beckett joins forces with Duccio di Buoninsegna (c. 1255-1319), the first of the Great Italian renaissance painters, to offer a privileged meditation into the story of our salvation in Christ.

Here, Sister Wendy reminds us that the challenges and consequences of these realities are still with us.
