Lenten Prayer Cloth front and back
Ellen Quigley 1 | 2
20" x 24"
The inspiration for these prayer cloths came from my Spiritual Director who places a piece of fabric on the table between herself and her directee. She then places a candle and an icon or a picture of a saint on the fabric. This practice creates a prayerful atmosphere and provides a common holy ground for prayers to meet. I was commissioned to create a series of prayer cloths specific to the liturgical seasons.
The Lenten Prayer Cloth represents Lent as both a time of taking away as well as adding on. The colors and design represent the actions of the Trinity - Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
