St. Gianna Molla by artist Neil Carlin
This past Sunday evening, I was watching "Sunday Night Live" with Fr. Benedict Groeschel on EWTN. It showcased the new Shrine of Guadalupe in La Crosse, Wisconsin. The Shrine is very beautiful. I am sure it will attract many pilgrims. What really caught my eye was this new painting of St. Gianna Molla, by artist Neil Carlin, which is displayed at the shrine. Mr. Carlin is an artist from the Brandywine Valley of Pennsylvania. I have seen many images of St. Gianna, but I think this is the best - it truly captures her heart, her love of God, of family, of life..
Does this painting of St. Gianna move you to prayer?
