Leo Neufeld, Albuquerque artist who created the painting for our Divine Mercy Chapel, recently came to show his work to a visiting friend. He was shocked when he saw that Jesus’ hand had been rubbed off from so many people touching it.
He has graciously offered to repaint the hand, but may we please ask everyone to cease the practice of touching Christ’s hands on this painting?
This work of art is a masterpiece. And we need to preserve it for future believers. Thanks so much!
