‘Corita Kent: Gentle Revolutionary of the Heart’ is a triptych of a life

Sr Rose Pacatte exhibits a literary painting-a triptych of a life destined for permanent collection: a woman artist, catholic wanderer, and human wonderer. The author reveals a complicated person bound up in the struggles and celebrations of church, higher education, art history, and self. Sr. Rose chronicles her evolution as an artist, educator, and revolutionary mystic with uncommon insight and extensive knowledge of the subject located in both the religious and secular. This book is a magisterial contribution to the series and deserves wide circulation. Miguel de Unamuno, in his Tragic Sense of Life, closes the work with these words from the heart: “May God deny you peace, but grant you glory”. Sr. Rose has issued, in vivid colors, a tribute to Corita that corresponds to Unamuno’s sentiment!
