A Century of Grace: A Meditation on the People of God in the House of God

A Century of Grace
I had the extreme good fortune to be involved as Editor on this book with Father Anthony Garibaldi, O.F.M. For more than a year we worked to develop a spiritually rich concept, which included a focus on the people of God. I also had the remarkable opportunity to do some of the writing and photography. The book is stunning, and is now available for order.

Peace and best wishes,

A Century of Grace:
A Meditation on a People of God in a House of God

With over 300 full-color photographs, this stunning book is not only an extensive and beautiful record of stained glass, murals, statues, and architecture, but it is also a meditation on Scripture, prayer, Franciscan spirituality, and liturgy in this sacred space, St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church. You will see that we do not walk through this journey alone, but are surrounded by "a cloud of witnesses" (Hebrews 12:1).

This collection of photos, Scripture, and prayers witnesses for us how belief can be integrated beautifully with environment. Worship is enhanced when tradition, creativity, and enthusiasm meet to acclaim the divine.

Update: Book signing December 6-7, 2008

Over the weekend of December 6-7, J.D. (on the right) joined Father Anthony Garibaldi in a book signing event following each mass at St. Francis of Assisi Church in Sacramento, CA.
