New, exclusive portrait of Servant of God Thea Bowman
Be inspired by the life and holiness of Servant of God Thea Bowman, a holy nun of the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration who lived during the twentieth century and dedicated her life to teaching and sacred music. She encourages Catholics to bring their cultural experience and unique talents to the ministry of the Church.
Catholic artist Tianna Williams and Fr. Josh Johnson partnered with Ascension to create this beautiful piece of sacred art, an image that can help transform Catholic churches and homes into places of deeper rest, prayer, and faith.
Rich with symbolism, this portrait depicts Thea Bowman in her cultural dress and headwrap, portraying with historical accuracy her dedication to her African heritage.
Each aspect of this image speaks to an important aspect of her holy life. For Thea Bowman, the books she holds represent the time and energy she spent furthering her own learning and using this knowledge to educate others.
Inspiring Catholic art is not reserved for use in churches and cathedrals—it is available for homes and offices as well. As the Catechism of the Catholic Church tells us, “Sacred art draws man to adoration, to prayer, and to the love of God” (CCC 2502).
An email explaining the symbolism of this image will be sent to those who purchase it so that they can fully understand and appreciate its message.
