Collection: Saintly Tea Party

ARTIST: Br. Mickey McGrath, OSFS


This image was originally created for the British cover of Robert Ellsberg's book on women saints entitled, Blessed Among Women. In keeping with the British theme I chose a tea party of some of the women which Robert highlighted in the book. They are Mary and Elizabeth, Kateri Tekakwitha, Harriet Tubman, and Hildegard of Bingen; Mary Magdalene, Therese, and Dorothy Day; Brigid of Ireland, Joan of Arc, Anne Frank and Margaret of Scotland is front and center, where a queen should be.
