"Michael O'Neill McGrath, one of the most talented religious artists of our time, has given us a beautifully drawn and beautifully written book about the life of Sister Thea Bowman.

Read this glorious book and discover--through words and art--one of the great Catholics of our time." --James Martin, SJ

Publisher's Description

Sister Thea Bowman (1937-1980), an African-American Franciscan, was one of the great treasures of the American Catholic Church. Here, through a series of 12 stunning paintings and his reflections on her life and teaching, McGrath celebrates the spirit of one of the great prophets and spiritual guides of modern times.


"Her faith was her life...her life was a flame that still brightens the darkness of our world today." --Diana L. Hayes

"'Courageous, prophetic and prayerful,' writes Michael O'Neill McGrath of Sister Thea Bowan and this is also true of his inspiring book. Jesus has promised always to be with His church and it is Him we see in the joyful freedom of Sister Thea's holiness and in Micheal McGrath's words and pictures." --Sister Wendy Beckett

"Thea Bowman was a comfort and hope to so many of us while she lived. Now Michael McGrath allows that comfort and hope to continue--not just through her wisdom but also through paintings that really capture her marvelous Gospel energy!" --Richard Rohr, O.F.M.
