For the past 13 years Sr. Maureen McMahon O.P. has been writing about Art in The Messenger magazine. She picks a favourite work of art, describes it and then guides the reader to find a deeper meaning in the work. A selection of her articles has now been complied into a beautiful book called ‘A Selection of Irish Art with Reflections’.

Eileen Good met Sr. Maureen and asked her if Art and Spirituality have something in common.
