Christ Our Morning Star
Koder Reflection Book.
The Church’s ancient hymn of Easter praise addresses Christ as the Morning Star – an image that heralds the hope of a new day. Sr Magdalen Lawler has presented a moving reflection on the Scriptural and artistic depth within 16 of Sieger Köder’s paintings, three of which have not previously been published in the UK, available on the CD-Rom 'More Art & Inspiration'.
In the words of Nicholas King SJ:
“This is a stunning piece of work. The extraordinary colours of the palette of Fr Sieger Köder as he contemplates the mysteries of Scripture are brilliantly enhanced by the sensitive text of Sr Magdalen Lawler. In a world that is starting to rediscover how much it stands in need of God, this work will be just the thing for those who are looking for the mystery that lies at the heart of life and at the heart of humanity. The poems of Fr Tom McGuinness make an excellent counterpoint and are subtly displayed.
This book should be attentively read, and its pages contemplated in rapt silence.”
