Catholic Evangelist & Speaker

Kelly Wahlquist is a dynamic and inspiring Catholic speaker whose gift of weaving personal stories and Scripture together with practical advice allows her audience to enter more fully into what Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict have called us into - to be witnesses of our faith and part of the New Evangelization.



THEME: The creation of man

FOCUS OF THE MEDITATION: God, I came from you, live in you, and am going to you. I am yours, you are mine


The Creation of Adam


Sistine Chapel

Circa 1511-1512

"Regard how God holds the sphere of the world in this pairing, how it rests secure."

Notice how Rapael depicts the "Triune God as an eternal relationship of love, a divine family where the Father is over all and in all. The Son is sent from the Father into the world through the Virgin Mary who adores him among the hosts in this fresco…. The Holy Spirit is represented here as the dove, the peacemaker and Sanctifier who leads us into all truth."


Jeremiah 1:15

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you

before you were born I dedicated you

a prophet to the nations I appointed you.


Psalm 139:13-14

You formed my inmost being;

you knit me in my mother's womb.

I praise you, because I am wonderfully made;

wonderful are your works!

My very self you know.



"How is God's creative loving hand present in your life now? Where do you need the Lord's presence more?"

The comments above are taken from Meditations on Vatican Art by Fr. Mark Haydu. To truly enter into this Visio Divina, I suggest purchasing the book as each masterpiece comes with a complete description, prayer and reflection, and spiritual exercise.
