The Boy Jesus in the Temple

nave, gospel side
Our Lord at 12 years old centrally placed among the teachers in the temple. One hand holds a scroll, the other forms a conventional rhetorical gesture. Read the gospel account at Luke 2:42-47.

The dedication across the bottom of the tryptic: In loving memory of Helen Charlotte O'Keefe.  Mrs. O'Keefe was the wife of Eugene O'Keefe, founder of O'Keefe Brewing Co., a forerunner of Molson Coors Brewing Co.  

The O'Keefes have left a stunning legacy of their Catholic philanthropy in Toronto at St. Michael's Cathedral, St. Augustine's Seminary, and elsewhere. If God gives you great wealth do you likewise.
