David Jones (1895-1975) is the subject of this podcast. Not generally well-known in the United States, David Jones has been the subject of ongoing exploration by many people here and abroad regarding the overlap and cross-fertilization between art and faith, specifically Christian faith. Jones was an Anglo-Welsh artist who specialized in line drawings and watercolor but whose epic poetry was of equal importance to his artwork. Father Gabriel has long appreciated Jones's work and invites you to listen in as he unveils Jones for you.
"You have been a blessing to me in ways that words cannot possibly explain. For this I'm indebted to you for life already, for in your podcasts you have unlocked the beauty of Orthodox Christianity that has been reflected for over two thousand years. As I listen to your commentaries, my soul is moved because I reflect on the true meaning of what it means to be a christian in the light of the apostles and compare my own state of unworthiness to that which I aspire to become."
