TREE OF LIFE AFGHAN PROJECT:   When  Yarns by Design , an Oakmont yarn shop, launched the Tree of Life Afghan Project after a horrific shooting at the Squirrel Hill synagogue to show support for those who worshipped there, the response was overwhelming. By early December, more than 1,000 knitted or crocheted squares had arrived from across the globe. N ow volunteers will be working to complete the project by seaming the squares into an estimated 50 blankets.  St. Paul's very own Mother Anne Emry has contributed a square for this project.  You can read more about the project at Tree of Life Blanket Project Article.

Miraculous Draught of Fishes, Raphael, 1515, Cartoon for tapestry. The Raphael cartoons are designs for tapestries and were commissioned from Raphael by Pope Leo X (1513-21) in 1515. The tapestries, which were intended to hang in the Sistine Chapel in Rome, illustrate scenes from the lives of St. Peter and St. Paul. In this cartoon Christ tells Peter to cast his net into the water whereupon he and his fellow apostles make a miraculous catch. The story refers to Peter's role as "fisher of men", who converts others to Christianity. It also demonstrates Peter's humility as he kneels before Christ to acknowledge his divinity, and confess his own sinfulness. Collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum, London.
