Studio Photos of The Ascetic
A few days ago, The Ascetic took up permanent residence in New Braunfels. Since you will not see him out and about anytime soon, we would like to share these farewell photos with you. We will surely miss him.
A few weeks ago, Terri and her husband Carlos traveled from Lubbock to Seguin. They left with “Mary Magdalene at the Cross.” Thus ending one chapter of the story “The Cross for The Road to Emmaus.” Terri will present the sculpture for the first time in February 2012 to participants in the Road to Emmaus Retreat. We will of course update this blog with the next chapter of the story.
Thank you, Terri for you are an inspiration and a blessing. May God be with you and the wonderful Carlos.

This installment shows the sculpture part way through the sanding process.
The Guadalupe Regional Medical Center chose St. Brigid’s Cross for the chapel feeling that any chaplain would do well to model their ministry after the life of St. Brigid. Much like St. Brigid, the chaplain often finds that the most sacred “chapel” is at the bedside of the sick and dying. In those holy moments it is always the chaplain’s desire to bring love, peace and comfort through prayer and faith. In the manner of St. Brigid, Chaplains often share God’s love by reaching out to the poor, to those in need and to those whose hearts are hurting.
