In our weekly video series "Art That Surrounds Us," Johan van Parys, Ph.D., our Director of Liturgy and Sacred Arts, shares information about a piece from The Basilica of Saint Mary's art collection.
In this episode for Divine Mercy Sunday, Johan tells us about Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska and her apparition of Jesus which inspired devotion to the Divine Mercy. He also shares details about our Merciful Jesus icon by Deb Korluka, which includes elements of the resurrected Jesus who appeared to Saint Faustina merged with the depiction of Jesus as he appeared to Saint Thomas in the Upper Room.
“How much the world is in need of the mercy of God today!”
- Saint Pope John Paul II
