More Art from the Sacristy

Last month, I published some photographs taken by Fr Jeffrey Keyes of the clever designs made with the ties of his amice by the sacristan of the convent where he says Mass. (This is at the Regina Pacis Convent of the Marian Sisters of Santa Rosa, in Santa Rosa, California.) Judging from the viewing statistics, which went through the roof, you really liked them, so here are several more. As I said previously, Sister is a true artist in her field, and with an authentic Catholic liturgical spirit, makes different designs depending on the liturgical season or feast day.

The keys of St Peter for the Feast of St Peter’s Chair
A sword, the emblem of St Paul, for the feast of his Conversion.
A crosier for the bishops Ss Timothy and Titus
A chalice and host for the feast of St Ignatius of Antioch, in reference to his famous words about the true presence his description of the Sacrament as “the medicine of immortality.”
On the feast of St Josephine Bakhita on February 8th, the Lamb of God, sitting on the book with the seven seals. (Apocalypse 5, 1)
St Blase
Season after Epiphany
For St John Chrysostom, a book with Cross on it, to symbolize his preaching on the Word of God.
