I have just heard from Sr Petra Clare about some icons she is painting for us, of the children's patron saints. This is very exciting, of course (and the children don't know about them, unless they stumble across this, which seems unlikely).
But it reminds me that it is a long time since I plugged her work (see here for example), so I thought I should give her another mention.
Here is an example of her work: a rather wonderful Annunciation.
More may be seen on her website here. If ever you are stuck for a gift for an important occasion for a Catholic friend, an icon is a wonderful thing to give - and to receive.
