Butterflies alight in the tangled branches of a tree, its roots visible in the clear ground illuminated by lights. This divine family tree reminds us of the interconnectedness of our human family. Individuals, represented by the butterflies, are housed in the wired branches that represent the various familial and cultural lines on earth. The roots of this tree make visual our ancestors who have passed on, and the light of Christ exists and is reflected for all.

"Although we all have different talents, abilities, and physical attributes, we are all part of the same divine family tree."
