On the feast of the Epiphany, the visit of the Three Magi to the manger, the author takes up a new spiritual journal through a year to the next Epiphany. Those Wise Men following their Star have long held a special place in the imagination of the faithful of all ages. So too does art provide a mirror or window on history, on worlds past, on Faith. Lux Umbra Dei Light is the Shadow of God. whether the light of the Star leading the Magi, or the blinding flash of light that converted St. Paul, or the natural light all around us each day. Likewise music both sacred and secular builds a bridge between past and present as dazzling as the Golden Gate. To play or just to listen offer two ways of crossing that bridge and entering another world. It is a religious experience in the most literal sense of the word.

This journey with the Magi though art and faith shapes a year as it proceeds from season to season, from Epiphany, through Lent, Easter, ordinary time, Advent, Christmas and back to Epiphany. Music, books, art, and worship quite literally tie together past, present, and future as they nourish one s spiritual life and offer glimpses of the Eternal.

Exquisitely written, this unique book, a blend of art, music, literature, and faith, is a joy to read, and especially easy to digest in small daily segments. 201160 Charles Scribner III, Charles Scribner 3rd
