In this episode, Patti and Sr. Gabby share an interview they did with Marianist artist and photographer Brother John Lemker. Bro. John just completed 70 years of profession as a Marianist, and much of his religious life has been filled with his greatest passions: faith, science, and photography. We talk to Bro. John about his photography, how he finds God -- the "original artist" -- in nature, and how he combines faith, science, and art in the work he does. You don't want to miss it!
