My eighth Father Gabriel Orthodox Christian comic strip took me the longest to complete, mostly due to the fact that it was a challenge deciding on which of the below quotes I wanted to use:
Scripture brought me to the Gate of Paradise, and the mind stood in wonder as it entered ~Saint Ephrem the Syrian
When you begin to read or listen to the Holy Scriptures, pray to God thus: “Lord Jesus Christ, open the ears and eyes of my heart so that I may hear Thy words and understand them, and may fulfill Thy will.” Always pray to God like this, that He might illumine your mind and open to you the power of His words. Many, having trusted in their own reason, have turned away into deception ~Saint Ephrem the Syrian
For the time being, I wanted to limit my panels to one and if needed two or three. But I felt that the second quote was going to go beyond three panels so I decided to keep it simple and use the first quote. Both quotes are beautiful and I love them equally, but for now I wanted to keep my comic strips as simple as possible.
