Note from the author:
R is for Rosary a Catholic Family Alphabet is truly a collaborative effort involving my spiritual companion Sr. Patt, my critique group, art designer Lorien, business partner Debra LaPlante, and the Holy Spirit. Yes, I believe that! I remember how I felt after writing the text on the R page. I reread it and wondered where those words came from. Surely the Holy Spirit guided me. When it came to deciding how to illustrate the book, the Spirit was present again. I had just finished writing about St. Kateri Tekakwitha and was shutting the computer down when my photo library opened up. I clicked on a thumbnail (I have over 20,000 images in my library) and it was the photo of the icon of St. Kateri that I took at the San Carlos Mission on the Apache reservation. It was then that I had the idea to illustrate the book with images of sacred art. And to think that this book would still be packed away in a crate under the table in my office if it wasnt for the 4th graders at Ss. Simon and Jude. Upon completion, I dedicated the book to the students at Ss. Simon and Jude Cathedral School in Phoenix for inspiring me to finish it.
