"How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love." - BLESSED TERESA OF CALCUTTA

The Respect Life Office Art Sale is selling donated art work from Justine Jannace Lomenzo, a Long Island artist. The proceeds will be used to help maternity residences and other Respect Life needs.

About the Artist

Justine Jannace Lomenzo, born in 1939 lives in Commack, New York, and has four sons and eight grandchildren. Justine started painting in 2008, and unfortunately due to an illness stopped painting for close to two years. After starting to paint again in 2011, she attended classes at the Museum of Art, Vero Beach, Florida and at Plein Air Painting in Southampton. Justine’s favorites subjects are seascapes and landscapes and paints scenes around Long Island for her inspiration.

Justine reflects, “I thank God for this exciting journey because He is my teacher and this is an unexpected gift. My wish is that all of the profits from the sales of the paintings be donated to Respect Life for mothers and babies.”
