You are free to use this material in any way you wish I only ask that you leave a comment and tell me how you
are using it --for example "with H.S./college students" or with a "church youth or discussion group" or for "personal
student/research work" or "teacher planning/research"... that would be nice information for me. Thank you!
I also am a contributing writer on Liturgical Art for the website Cleansing Fire located in Rochester New York. My
