The book Open Your Eyes Open Your Heart is filled with the poems and photography of Sister Patricia Marie Lohre, IWBS. The poems range in topics of life, death, challenges, journey, and hope that are inspired by pictures of and in nature. They reflect the “spiritual journey of a beautiful soul.” They explore the pains of life and call awareness to them. They give hope and express sorrow. This book is enjoyable just for the beauty of the photos and poems. It can also open the door to deeper reflection of oneself and of others.
Patricia Marie Lohre is a Sister of the Incarnate Word and Blessed Sacrament of Victoria, Texas. She is currently a student at Our Lady of the Lake University working on her BA in Religious Studies and Theology, with a minor in Philosophy. She started her journey with the Sisters in 2009. Her love of photography grew after her father gave her his old 35mm camera many years ago. She has sent much time over the years hiking, camping, and canoeing with her camera and her Beloved Creator. Nature is the first revelation of God and of God’s love. Much can be learned by spending time in the presence of the Creator in creation. It only requires that eyes and hearts be open.
