About the images:
Upper Left and right: These images are free from the Hermano Leon site which you can find via my links at left. This is a really great lectionary based clip art site.

Lower Right: This is a free image from the Cerezo Barredo site.  It is a little hard to navigate if you are an English speaker but he has lovely sketches such as this one accessed at the bottom of his web page sorted by lectionary year.
