I watched this video a couple years back after my mother had passed away due to lung cancer. When I watched I could feel only a deep connection with his words. It was so beautifully said. I love this video too much not for it to be shared. It's given me so much motivation and I hope it does for all of you. "Live simply so others can simply live"

"I painted Mary in a silky blue robe surrounded by a background palette of cerulean, cobalt and Persian blue. This is how I interpreted the vision of baby Jesus and his beautiful young mother. The robe connects both of them as if there were one. "Mary is the symbol of love, warmth, affection, tenderness and devotion. Her story is the story of love and faith. "Mary with her tender love embraced Jesus at birth, embraced him on the Cross and embraced him on his resurrection. That is why the lower hand in a shadow is her witnessing the crucifixion, and the upper hand in light is her witnessing both the birth and the resurrection."
