Known as the “Peace Prophet”, this Chicago artist creates striking portraits and botanical drawings. Little is known about the Peace Prophet, a literal “outsider artist” living homeless on the streets of Chicago. This enigmatic woman has created a remarkable body of work and is among the most widely collected artists in Chicago as her works are estimated to be in the collections of hundreds of people who have encountered her where she lives, on the streets surrounding the Chicago Cultural Center at Michigan Avenue and Randolph Street. The Peace Prophet is beginning to be recognized by the larger art world. Harvey Pranian, dealer in outsider art, describes her work as, “Reminiscent of Lee Godie but more elusive”. In addition to being owned by hundreds of private collectors and admirers, her work is included in the permanent collection of Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art in Chicago.

“Fear is the cheapest room in the house.
I would like to see you living
In better conditions.”

Pray 9 Divine Mercy Chaplets starting at 3 p.m. everyday.
Jesus, Divine Mercy Incarnate, I trust in You! I trust in the promises You made to me and to all the world through St. Faustina Kowalska. I trust that You love us all and only want the best for us.
Jesus, I ask you now: bring a swift end to this pandemic.
Protect and help the most vulnerable in our society, especially those already suffering from this terrible disease and all those who are helping them. Protect and help our healthcare professionals, our emergency first responders, and everyone else risking daily exposure to this pandemic disease in order to help the sick and maintain our society.
Establish in our families, our homes, our countries, and our world a culture of life and a civilization of love.
Jesus, help us all in this hour of need. Amen.
So next time the 3 o’clock hour comes around, remember to be with Christ in spirit, if only for a moment. Don’t forget that during this hour, the Lord wants you to ask for your heart’s desire, for everything you need. When you do, trust that He has your best interests at heart.
Book of Genesis, Yahweh “breathed into his nostrils a breath of Life, and thus man was born.” By choosing to believe in Love, we breathe our breath into that Love, giving Love that authority
A vision has emerged through You and for You
Heaven and earth inter-communicating
A bridge connecting the two to be walked on
Rising to the union of God, marrying us to You
A little house on a prairie
Deemed a place that is Holy and True
where we, your creation, can reel in our society
and how far it has gone away from You
A chapel that worships your Grace
Made by our human hands
in the hands of time
placed in the hands of God
A kitchen connected to rooms
that heal, fast, and find your glory
Wipe clean ego and self
healing that comes from a super natural source
without our savior, Jesus Christ, we are stuck in our sin
A garden that is tilled for the Glory of God
that can feed us
Nourish our knowledge in the Tree of Life
A place that earnestly seeks Your Will
A place that is not flattened out by secularism
A community, a holy shroud
that has undying faith and never loses hope
A people who find ways to come together in love.
Sacrifice to protect one another
Unify our building blocks, our God given gifts
to build our future
A people who together not finding divides.
Knowledge that we are together
and stronger in You
Magic Doors leading to You
Entering saying to each other “darling I’m here for you”
Offering our true presence to each other
Doors leading to
A place where we can be inside of you
and you inside of us
