Art and Sacrificial Love is a profound and illuminating conver- sation between two Catholic artists who are also gifted writers. The setting is a house in the woods near Combermere,
Canada. The two men are alone except for animals, and free
to explore the wellsprings of Christian art, and the suffering
that its creation entails.
This moving discussion between the two artists and writers
is not theoretical. It lays bare the anguish and joy of a life
lived in the service of an artist’s vocation. Illustrated.
“Christ and the Church ask Christian artists to be willing
to suffer in order to give birth to such works. In the age of
comfort and materialism, many artists draw back in revulsion from this invitation and, like the rich young man in the
Gospel, turn sadly away. They fail to understand that within
the mystery of suffering with Christ is hidden a great joy,
and inexhaustible riches.”
— Michael O’Brien
