Born in Denmark in the 1950s, I headed straight for the typical 1960s society with its clichés of liberal atheism resulting in a spiritual void. This void was not filled until I converted to the Catholic Faith many years later at Westminster Cathedral in London. Being in the arts and having been deeply involved in the staging of a large exhibition on the Jesuits and the Baroque, I came to realise the importance of the sacred image in promulgating the Faith, so vital today, where the young no longer read.
