Then let all the trees
of the forest rejoice
before the Lord who
comes, who comes to
govern the earth,
To govern the world
with justice and the
peoples with faithfulness.

Fra Angelico is well known as an Italian painter of the early Renaissance who combined the life of a devout Dominican friar with that of an accomplished painter. Angelico reportedly made what was considered a profound stewardship declaration during his life: “He who does Christ’s work must stay with Christ always.” Later known to art historians as Fra Angelico, he died in 1455. Saint John Paul II beatified Fra Angelico in 1982 and declared him patron of Catholic artists.
