Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe ten compasión y protege a todos los niños y padres separados en la frontera.
Our Lady of Guadalupe, have compassion and protect
all of the children and parents separated at the border.
As events in 2018 have unfolded, Sister Joanne Cullimore, OP has been deeply concerned about the separation of families seeking refuge at the southern border of the U.S. “What can I possibly do?” she thought. “I am not physically able to go. I am not a writer. But as an artist, perhaps I can make a contemporary retablo or ex voto with an urgent prayer to Our Lady of Guadalupe.”
Sister Joanne taught art at the high school and college levels for almost 50 years. A life-long artist, her work has been exhibited internationally. Many of her paintings are scenes from trips she took in California, the southwestern states, and Mexico.
Please join your prayers with ours that the families will be reunited and able to find the peace, security and dignity they seek and deserve.
