This drawing is a new icon of sorts. It is based on the traditional drawing of the Divine Mercy image and is normally presented looking like this (see the image of Christ in the backgroud):
This image appeared to St. Maria Faustina, a Polish nun, in the early 1930's. She was instructed to ask permission to get it painted with the words written underneath (in Polish, of course) "Jesus I trust in Thee (You)". She was never satisfied with the work of the artists who tried to capture what she described to them -- which is as it should be since she was trying to describe something supernatural. This is why it makes more sense to me to try to present the image as an icon.
This is truly just a first draft and I have a lot of thinking to do about it as I continue to work on it. All and any suggestions will be appreciated.
I stayed at home all day and waited -- but, guess what -- they never showed up. Not only that, when I tried to call the sales representative, all I got was the voice mail.
Peace be with you all.
