St. Lucian coloring page preview



This is one of the coloring pages newly made especially for The Day-by-Day Coloring Book of Saints, Volume 2, which contains saints for every single day of July through December. It's available here or from Amazon.

This scene shows St. Lucian before his conversion, at the incident which triggered his repentance. You see, Lucian was a sorcerer, a devil-worshiping practitioner of Satanic magic. When he tried to cast a spell on a Christian maiden, she made the Sign of the Cross, and the black magic failed. Astounded by this, Lucian repented, converted, and was later martyred. Nowadays, with Satanism resurgent in our culture, we could really use St. Lucian's prayers. His day is October 26.

Volume 1, which has January-June, is available here.

Paper Doll Veronika addition


It has to be admitted that in the past couple of months, I haven't been working too much on all the Paper Doll Veronika interim extra material that I listed in this post. First there was my sister's wedding and the attendant family visits, and since then I've been working on collaborative projects, mainly Jon Del Arroz's Clockwork Dancer and Jack Mikkelson's Bovodar and the Bears. I am close to done with my portion of Issue Two and Issue One of those respectively, so I want to push through to the end!

But I did do one of the Paper Doll Veronika things in my spare moments: I added an additional ornamentation to each chapter cover, which has some relation to what the chapter contains. So if you haven't yet caught up on this webcomic, or you were thinking of rereading it sometime now that Part I is complete, this is great time to do so!

And I forgot to mention in my earlier post, another thing I plan to do with Paper Doll Veronika is post it also on Webtoons!

Conscientious Objection

Whereas:

Masks do not protect against viruses whatsoever;

The novel corona virus has a relatively low fatality rate anyway;

I believe mask mandates are nothing but psychological conditioning operations to prime the public to accept forthcoming vaccines unquestioningly.

And since I believe forthcoming vaccines are very likely to contain sterilizers,

I conclude acquiescence to mask mandates to be immediate material cooperation with evil and my conscience will not allow me to comply.

Now, on the individual level, it is remote, not proximate cooperation. Your circumstances may be such that the harm that would befall your family if you do not comply would outweigh the good of your individual resistance. But I encourage everyone who can to resist. It is not enforceable if enough of us resist.

The one exception I am making for myself is if a face covering is demanded to enter a church for Mass. I will be deeply saddened by such obeisance on the part of the clergy, but the good of Mass attendance outweighs the evil of such a momentary cooperation by far.

By the way, I think it is perfectly acceptable to make use of medical exemptions. The medical condition of oxygen deprivation under nose and mouth restriction is one we all have.

Pray for me and for our nation.

This fairy-tale-like scene is the page for St. Bega, an Irish hermitess. Her hermitage was so remote nobody but the birds knew she was there, until St. Oswald, King of Northumbria, came across her when he was out hunting bandits. He persuaded her to join a nunnery under the authority of St. Aidan. Her day is September 6.
