Item Description...
Overview
A moving and joyous celebration of Franciscan Sister Thea Bowman, her vision for the Catholic church, and her model of humanity. Sister Thea Bowman (1937-1980), an African-American Franciscan, was one of the great treasures of the American Catholic church. Through her integration of Catholic tradition and black pride she served as a beacon for a church that celebrates diversity, inclusiveness, and love for all God's children. Through her ministry of public speaking she touched countless people, bearing a message of faith and hope rooted in the Gospels and the wisdom of the Spirituals. Through her final ordeal with cancer she offered an inspiring example of what it means to be "fully alive," and to "live until one dies." Inspired by Sr. Thea and her message-that God wants each of one of us to "let our little light shine"-Mickey McGrath found his own vocation as a well-known religious artist. Here, through a series of 12 stunning paintings and his reflections on her life and teaching, McGrath celebrates the spirit of one of the great prophets and spiritual guides of our time. It is a message that makes one rejoice in life and say Amen!

Thea's Song: The Life of Thea Bowman  May 4, 2010
Thea's Song: The Life of Thea Bowman is truly an amazing story. I could go into a lengthy assembly of expressive words and accolades, but I'll just say, "I pray that this book will become a best seller for many years to come and also be made into a movie." The world needs to know about Sister Thea Bowman and the things she learned while on the spiritual journey to become a nun in the Order of the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration.

A Beautiful Little Book  Jan 28, 2009
This Little Light is a beautiful book about Sister Thea Bowman, a black Franciscan nun from rural Mississippi. Sister Thea was an inspiration to many in her blending of Catholicism with the African-American experience. Her devotion may have followed an unusual path, but she inspired many with her spirit and changed the lives of many. McGrath's paintings help make her spirit more accessible to the reader with their vibrant colors and beautiful motion. This book has inspired me to learn more about this most interesting woman.
