The Mystery of Love: Saints in Art Through the Centuries
In her newest book, the beautifully illustrated The Mystery of Love, Sister Wendy presents thirty-one classic paintings depicting saints and in straightforward prose, explores these portrayals as representations of the saints' reverence toward God. She also includes a look at more contemporary artists, such as Paul Klee and Michael Finn, and their interpretations of spiritual "images of love." Each of her subjects, from Raphael's famous St. George and the Dragon to the lesser known St. Agnes by del Sarto, allows her to quietly demonstrate the benefit of this sanctity and passionately encourage her audience to embrace the holiness inherent within.
