Overview

In The Work of His Hands, Ken Gire develops an inspiring metaphor, using the restoration of one Michelangelo�s damaged statues to illustrate the way in which the Lord restores us, his creatures who have been damaged by death, disability, disease, the disobedience of sin, and the devil�s attacks. In May, 1972, a madman severely damaged Michelangelo�s premier creation, the Pieta, which depicts Mary holding the crucified Christ, and the best artists in the world carefully restored it. In this classically beautiful spiritual reflection, Gire says that in a similar way, God himself carefully restores us, his premier creations.
