Mercy and Grace Stroll Through the Neighbourhood
If virtues were actual people..
Some time ago I found an old photograph of two elderly women staring at the camera,. Definitely a Prudence, I thought. Prudence and Wisdom? And what would Mercy look like? Hope? And the virtue series was born.
If the first half of life tends to focus on the establishing of ourselves in the world, let the next half be all about growing in the virtues of mercy, grace, wisdom... remembering that the greatest of these is love.
