World’s foremost expert on original Divine Mercy Image to speak at parish presentations

It’s one of the most well-known sacred images in the world. It’s also one of the most mysterious.

History and tradition holds that the original Divine Mercy Image was painted under the guidance of St. Faustina based on a mystical vision she had of Jesus. The image depicts Christ standing and looking with a compassionate and merciful gaze, his right hand raised with rays of light illuminating from his Sacred Heart, and the words “Jesus, I Trust In You” inscribed underneath. It adorns countless parishes and sacred spaces around the world, and is the source of much devotion and adoration.

If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about the origins and significance of the original Divine Mercy Image, the world’s foremost expert on the image will be in Colorado at the end of January to give special presentations that will illumine the image anew.

Daniel DiSilva is the founder of the Original Divine Mercy Institute and director of the Original Image of Divine Mercy Documentary. He has conducted extensive research on the image which will soon be published in a book entitled Masterpiece of Mercy. He’ll be sharing some of what he’s discovered at the presentations happening on Jan. 29, 30 and 31 at St. John Paul II Parish in Thornton and Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish in Northglenn.

One element of DiSilva’s presentation that’s sure to be especially intriguing is the link between the Divine Mercy Image and the Shroud of Turin.

The presentations are open to the public, and no RSVPs are required. Find details about each presentation below. For any questions and further details, email kathleenmariecoate@gmail.com.
