Charles Dickens wrote The Life of Our Lord for his young children in the 1840’s. His family published it in 1934.
It is one of several little books I like to read during long walks. Some years ago I made a rough outline of it for retreats and such until one Monk Monday was spent with that outline and a brush and some black ink. These ink brush drawings are from that day, with apologies to real artists everywhere.
Some of the drawings appeared in a meditation rendering called A Jesus Breviary, but I have often wanted to put them with the outline of Dickens’ great little book for his children.
Crayons are allowed.
