I didn't know Nick Cave wrote a song about her. His music is nice. This blog is great.

Hello Fr. Ray!

I just finished a new painting of St. Christina. A three year labor of love called "St. Christina the Astonishing -- A Pelican in the Wilderness (Psalm 102)". Please come and visit!

I actually don't know if that link will work since the address is so long. If it doesn't, just go to cynthialarge.com and look for the first painting listed.

Thanks and God bless you!
Cynthia
