Silkscreen on paper, signed, with the text, "What the world expects of Christians is that Christians should speak out / And that they should voice their condemnation in such a way that never a doubt, never the slightest doubt, could rise in the simplest man. That they should get away from abstraction and confront the blood-stained face that history has taken on today. The grouping we need is a grouping of men resolved to speak out clearly and to pay up personally. -- Camus"; signed "Sister Mary Corita" in ink, lower right, employing pale green and blue, text in handwritten characters using negative space, and highlights of neon orange, 17 1/2 x 11 1/2 in.
