Today, February 11, is the 22nd World Day of the Sick which coincides with the commemoration of the Feast Day of Our Lady of Lourdes. Let us take time to say a prayer for the sick as well as for those caregivers who work hard to ease their suffering, giving hope and encouraging words to help them through their painful journey. The original quote is from St. Thomas Aquinas which goes like this:
To one who has faith , no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible.

One of the joys of sharing at our Catholic site are the comments and likes that I see every day. I think that no matter how simple our posts are, sometimes, there will always be someone who needs a loving and positive word to go on and the journey becomes light and easy and the joy gives way to hope for a better tomorrow.

I just can’t resist posting this lovely painting of Anita Magsaysay Ho, (Seated Women Sewing) a gifted and talented artist who is known for “her paintings that depict figurative abstracts of women at everyday tasks.” Four years ago, Bank of the Philippine Islands, where I used to work, started publishing pictures of paintings that they own via a lovely journal and my daughter who works there now gifted me with a copy. She has given me copies of these journal/diary/calendar that I collect since then. This year, it’s called A Legacy of Art (a treasury of paintings by Artists of National Prominence from the BPI Art Collection). I am almost afraid to write on its pristine pages because I like the paintings that they publish there. Here’s one more entitled Old Farmer With Hat by our National Artist Fernando Amorsolo done in 1929, oil on canvas.
This was done in acrylic, on paper by Cesar Legaspi entitled Taal Volcano. Legaspi is another national artist. I remember the very first time I did a blog on these art collections and one of the featured artists, Phyllis Zaballero found it and made some comments. I was in 7th heaven reading her posts.
