We Invite You To Ponder These Beautiful Prayers

Stabat Mater Prayer for Artists

Dearest Lord, you have set aside a vocation for each of us. We ask you to guide those whom you have called to be artists to endeavor to participate in the renewal of beauty in our culture through the use of their vocation. We ask you for a renewal of a bond between the world of art and the world of faith.

May artists brave the culture and bring Christ to all God’s children through their gift, the gift of an artistic vocation. We thank you for the beauty of your creation and ask for your blessing upon all artists that they may awaken in all people a knowledge of your love and omnipotence. We love you God, and we praise you. Amen.

Prayer to Saint Catherine of Bologna

O incomparable Saint Catherine aflame with love for Christ Crucified, you merited in life the choicest favors, and after death, you continue to shine with many marvels. That your body for over five centuries remains incorrupt is undoubtedly a sign of the glorious power you have in Heaven. Protect me always from every danger to body and soul. I beg you to obtain for me from the Lord this favor.

May the fruit of your protection be for me a strong faith, a precise fulfillment of my Christian duties, a constant spirit of sacrifice, and above all, the purity of heart for whom is reserved eternal joy in the beatific vision of God. Amen.

Cornelius Sullivan, Three Crosses

Note about this work:

Cornelius Sullivan was the first artist to contact the Stabat Mater Prayer Apostolate upon hearing of its formation. He immediately sent the image of his painting, “Three Crosses.”

In his own words,

This painting has been called Three Crosses but I have also called it Stabat Mater.

It is 3 x 4 feet, oil on canvas. It has an interesting history.

I was surprised by this light on the painting on December 8, 2007, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. It was what I had imagined for the concept of the painting. The light was reflected, and refracted into colors of the spectrum, by the angular edge of a mirror on the opposite wall of the studio. It was encouraging to have this light appear just as I was trying to paint it.
