Sonnets in meditation on Mary's Life. In this second issue of Art and Spirituality, both word and image are vehicles of meditation. They both illustrate the meaning of pondering , which is a spiritual form of moving the cradle to and fro. God's own word is cradled in the heart of the believer . It begs to be rocked and cuddled to reveal its secrets and disclose the depth of its love . This is what the artist and poet set out to achieve in this Booklet.
