Do not be troubled or weighed down with grief.  Do not fear any illness or vexation, anxiety or pain. Am I not here who am your Mother?   Are you not under my shadow and protection?  Am I not the fountain of life?   Are you not in the folds of my mantle?  In the crossing of my arms?   Is there anything else you need?' (Words spoken by the Patroness of the Americas -  to Juan Diego on December 

12, 1531)

Early religious art not only paid homage to events and saints, it also had a purpose, that of visual aids. The masterpiece was not meant to be worshipped like an idol but to give a visual reminder and to teach a people who could not read or did not have access to the media as we do today.

Christ - Icon

It is believed the Icon is divinely inspired by God. Icons are written (painted) in a style that is timeless. The Artist who is called or inspired becomes the vehicle through which the Holy Spirit works.  The Icon is believed to be a window to the world above.

Madonna and Child - Whitney
+ WHITNEY 
MADONNA ROOM
The eye and heart of Whitney reveals the artist's awareness of the humaness of Mary and Jesus. These must be some of the most beautiful of contemporary works.  Icons in their own right, they show us a side of Mary and Jesus rarely seen.
