Amy Winehouse Pre Memorial Portrait

Amy Winehouse pre memorial portrait

Amy Winehouse Remembered - Times Online

An original miniature pre-memorial oil portrait of British pop star and soul singer Amy Winehouse, who recently recorded the theme song for the upcoming James Bond film Quantum of Solace. The question is-will Mrs. Winehouse live long enough to hear her big and brassy Shirley Bassey-styled megahit played on the radio?

I normally hold off until a person has passed away before painting a memorial portrait, but since Mrs. Winehouse seems intent upon killing herself there seem to be no point in waiting. Amy; I dare you to prove this portrait wrong.

In this recent 'Amy Winemouse' video, Amy displays a brood of baby mice and in the heartbreaking voice of one implores her jailed husband Blake (who has returned to his Catholic faith while awaiting trial) not to divorce her.

I expect our former coadjutor and new Bishop John Nienstedt is waiting until after former Archbishop Harry Flynn, who retired last week, completes the remaining appointments on his official calendar before fully restoring Father Altier to the equivalent or better of his former duties.

I expect that is what he will do. Not a few of us also expect that's what he should.

Irena Sendler Memorial Portrait

Irena Sendler, Catholic hero of the Holocaust

Standing less than 5 feet tall, Polish Catholic social worker Irena Sendler saved more than twice as many Jews during World War II than Oskar Schindler, many times sedating children and carrying them out of the Warsaw Ghetto in sacks, boxes or coffins in order to save them from a trip to an extermination camp. Eventually she was caught, tortured, but survived the war. Her story was largely unsung until 1999 when four Kansas girls doing research for a school play discovered she was still alive. In 2003, Pope John Paul II sent a personal letter to Sendler, praising her wartime efforts.

Irena Sendler was passed over for a Nobel Prize in 2007. The award instead went to Al Gore.
