Pieta, pastel on paper

“The struggle now, as always, is between the good and the great.  There are so many good people and so few are great.  And when they are great they are usually not very good.  Christ was not only good.  He was also great.”  (1938)

Study for the oil painting of the same name.

“Society has been ‘freed.’  It has been emancipated from God.  As has been said, man cannot be neutral for long.  He must be ultimately the slave of God or the slave of the Devil.  Our choice is between the Servile State of avaricious materialism (factory civilization) and total Christianity.”  (1943)
