But behold, I say unto you that ye must pray always, and not faint; that ye must not perform any thing unto the Lord save in the first place ye shall pray unto the Father in the name of Christ, that he will consecrate thy performance unto thee, that thy performance may be for the welfare of thy soul.
When I was young I saw the Legacy movie at the Salt Lake Temple visitor’s center. The part I clearly remembered was when Mary Fielding Smith, the Mormon pioneer, gave her sick ox a blessing by the laying on of hands. This image of Mary blessing the ox is an empowering symbol for women across the church and is often discussed in Relief Society. In our women’s meetings we review the importance of reaching out to a priesthood holder to give us blessings. But in sacred cases, we know women also have priesthood power.

It was then soaked in an acid bath to achieve tones, inked by hand, and run through a printing press to create a this one of a kind image. Each image varies slightly.

The paper size is 11x14".
