Art and Sacrificial Love is a conversation between two Catholic artists who are also gifted writers. The setting is a house in the woods near Combermere; the two men are alone except for animals, and free to explore the wellsprings of Christian art and the suffering that its creation entails. The discussion is not theoretical; it lays bare the anguish and joy of a life lived in the service of an artist’s vocation.
