In this life there are many things to prepare for, but the most important is for our entrance into the kingdom of heaven. I will take you with me, should you want to come along, on my personal journey to the door which will lead to eternity, through which every soul must pass. Where the angel of death waits to ask the all important question, "Are you prepared for the Kingdom?"

Two years ago I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. I was one of the fortunate ones who survived surgery along with chemo/radiation treatments. Recently, it was discovered that the cancer had returned and although I am again on chemotherapy, in all probability I have perhaps one more year to live. During these last months I would like to share what I have learned about the most important thing we'll ever do in this life and that is, prepare for the kingdom of God.

Very nice icons! I like icons a lot. For my blog, I made a header of Jesuit-inspired icons created by Fr WIlliam Hart McNichols, SJ. And I just posted a picture of an Ignatius icon painted by Meltem Atkas.

Thank you for your kind comments. These Holy Images should remind us of the "other world" so to speak where the Trinity dwells with the most holy Mother of God and all the angels and saints. They are truly "windows to heaven."
