The CatholicAuthor Logo: Quills, Ravens, and Catholic Fiction

Nov 26, 2021 | Articles, Latest

Color: The purpling moodiness of twilight and early morning… We like to pair it with the bright, clean tones of fresh paper and open skies. The crisp calm of cabins and quiet moments. The dark night of the soul’s imagination…

Quill: The quill means writing, a feather plucked from a raven’s wing. The whiteness of the quill points to our intent to do good, and find the light in the darkness.

Ravens: The Raven symbol is complex. It connotes loss and danger, and also prophecy and insight. In stories, Ravens connect the material world with the world of spirits. They reflect mind, thought, and wisdom to the Norse. It is a good symbol for the line-walking imagination of the Catholic author, dramatizing the realities of the spiritual, mystical, and mortal life.

Catholic: The Catholic author sits on that thin line between past and present. We drink deep of the ancient past of Christian heritage and insight, and wrestle with the new themes and cultures of our current world. We always circle a core idea; God is not in competition with his creation. In fact, he reveals himself through it.

A good company: Ravens fed the prophet Elijah during his seclusion in the desert. Jon Snow joined the Night Watch, the only company to face first and longest the Night King. Hogwart’s Ravenclaws are valued for wisdom, wit, intelligence, and learning. Peregrin Took was crowned with a raven crown…

“I am the watcher on the walls. I am the fire that burns against the cold, the light that brings the dawn, the horn that wakes the sleepers, the shield that guards the realms of men…” Oath of the Nights Watch, Game of Thrones
