News - July 2009

London Exhibition – July to October 2009 – "The Mystery of Faith"An exhibition of new and rarely seen religious pictures by Elizabeth Wang runs in London from 15th July to 31st October  2009– plenty of time for you to visit. It takes place at a new venue: The Carmelite Church, 41 Kensington Church Street, Kensington, London W8 4BB, which is five minutes walk from High Street Kensington tube station and ten minutes walk from Notting Hill Gate tube station. The Church is open every day from 7am to 7pm. Most of the pictures are recent works, and will be new even to those who know Elizabeth's work well. We hope you will be able to visit. Please note that the exhibition is in a different church this year and NOT the French Church…

An Afternoon Together in October. On Saturday 31st October 2009, the last day of the exhibition, from 2pm to 4pm, there will be an afternoon of reflection and worship in the Carmelite Church where the exhibition is taking place. It will include a talk by Elizabeth Wang on the exhibition theme, the celebration of Holy Mass, and refreshments in the hall. All are welcome; no tickets required. 

Radiant Light Website Re-Launched. The new website (at the same address – www.radiantlight.org.uk) went 'live' earlier this month, after months of planning. It looks very similar to the old site, but the improved 'machinery' in the background allows us to present Elizabeth Wang's pictures in high quality and share them with people around the world. So at this moment there are over 600 images available, which can be downloaded and printed in high-quality at home. There is no charge for non-commercial uses – for those who want to store and print pictures for personal use or for catechesis or evangelisation. We hope that the new site will be a great resource for schools and parishes, and for all those individuals who have been inspired by the work of Elizabeth Wang. It includes selections of new paintings on pro-life issues, and on the Liturgy. It is a kind of visual catechism for a visual age. There is scarcely a picture that could not be matched by a quotation from Sacred Scripture and from the Catechism of the Catholic Church.



We are sorry to have to share the news that Elizabeth died on Saturday evening, 10th September. 2016 She died peacefully, in her own room at home, with all her immediate family around her bedside. Some of you will have heard that she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer only three months ago, so the end has come very quickly. It was only six weeks ago that she was on pilgrimage to Lourdes with her family and diocese. In many ways the swiftness has been a mercy, and it’s a consolation for all of us that her suffering is now at an end.

We are especially grateful for these last few days. We have had so much time together as a family – talking, listening, praying – and with the four grandchildren constantly running around. Elizabeth was surrounded by so much love, and she gave us so much love, even in her weakness and vulnerability. She has been looked after by many kind people with such tenderness. She received the last sacraments from Stephen, and we were able to celebrate Mass together in her room just a few hours before she died. She was at peace and longing to meet the Lord.

She will be missed so much, but we are full of such gratitude to God for the gift of her life, and for her faith. She had such a love for Christ, for his Church, and for his Blessed Mother Mary, and this has touched us all.

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers during this illness. Please pray for her and for all those who mourn her now, especially our father Kin. Please pray for the continuing work and mission of Radiant Light, which was so close to her heart. With our best wishes and our prayers for you and your intentions.

Fr Stephen Wang, Chris Wang, Mary Figg
