More About Holy Seeing
Since the early church, Christians have used visual images, whether art or architecture, as an invitation to enter into a sacred place of prayer. This visual invitation has come to be known as, ‘Visio Divina’, which literally means ‘Holy looking’. In Holy Seeing, artist and spiritual director Br. Ignatius Feaver invites us to enter into to beautiful black and white artwork with the inner eye of our soul. As a Capuchin Franciscan, Br. Ignatius believes in the gift of praying with our five senses. Gently, he teaches us how to do the same. Accompanying each of the 30 illustrations is a passage from scripture, our Catholic Tradition or a poem, a brief reflection by Br. Ignatius on the particular illustration, and questions for reflection.
