fount of harmony and source of unity,
we ask for the grace to face the sin of division in our society;
we beg for mercy and forgiveness for the harm we have done,
we implore that you open our hearts and minds to ways that will bring about justice, equality, healing, harmony and peace,
and we pray for the conversion of heart of all those who perpetuate fear, promote supremacy and cultivate hatred.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
In our weekly video series "Art That Surrounds Us," Johan van Parys, Ph.D., our Director of Liturgy and Sacred Arts, shares information about a piece from The Basilica of Saint Mary's art collection. This week, Johan discusses our late 15th Century painting Adoration of the Magi, which was donated to The Basilica by the Lahiff family in the 1970s from the art collection of their family member Elizabeth Quinlan, founder of the Young-Quinlan companies.
