Welcome to the Journey Photos. When father Marcel Gervais (now the Archbishop emeritus of Ottawa) first started writing the Journey lessons he decided it might help if there were illustrations with the commentary on certain biblical passages. He knew a young artist named Peter Gaspari and he asked Peter to read the texts and the commentaries and to draw the illustrations that could accompany the text in order to help the readers better understand the text. Peter would read the texts and meditate on the commentary and then draw the illustration he thought fit the text. Some he drew as pencil sketches, others he used a method whereby he actually carved the image on a piece of wood and then place ink on the wood and transfer the image to paper.
We believe the results speak for themselves. they are truly marvelous. Open these and see for yourself.
