These five “Laudable Conditions of the Blessed Virgin” provide me something to latch on to as I seek to grow in my faith and prayer life. They also provide me with permission to experience the broad range of human emotion and experience as I seek to become intimate with God as Mary did. It is too easy to jump to Mary’s “yes” and in the process lose connection, but she (like me) was disrupted, then needed to reflect, then ask questions, before submitting to God’s will.

This piece was exhibited at the International Marian Research Institute at University of Dayton, Dayton, OH. It was also included in the 2nd Edition of Gregory Wolfe's collection of essays Intruding Upon the Timeless

What is a monoprint? A “hand-pulled print” refers to the traditional printmaking process where a plate is created that can then be rolled through a press multiple times to create multiple images. A monoprint uses the same traditional process – an image on a plate, rolled through a press, but it only has one iteration. Unlike an etching or engraving or woodcut, where the image remains impressed on the plate and can be inked and run again, a monoprint is a completely unique image. It is more closely related to painting than other forms of printmaking.
