Description

On the painting:
Painted with oil paint on a primed, heavyweight canvas, the painted part measures roughly 8×10, and the canvas overall at roughly 10×12. Comes with the simple wood frame shown in the photos which hangs on your wall with string threaded through the top bar. Frame is attached with magnets and provides that finishing touch besides making it possible to hang.

Can you get this painting stretched on canvas bars and traditionally framed? Probably – let me know if you do, I would love to see pictures! I do not finish them this way because the rough edge is by design and provides its own charm and character.

On the reference: Painted from a public domain painting of the saint, copyright for this particular rendition remains with me, Monica Skrzypczak. Do not copy without permission, post as you would desire on social media, but be sure to tag @outpouringoftrust.

No prints will be made of any Saint paintings.

On the Saint:

St. Gabriel Possenti of the Sorrowful Mother is one of our simplest Saints. Born before St. Therese of Lisieux, he nonetheless ended up having a spirituality very similar to hers – in his words, “Our perfection does not consist of doing extraordinary things but of doing the ordinary well.” Before he entered the Passionist order, he was popular and worldly, though his childhood was marked with the death of four of his siblings and his mother.

He also was sickly throughout his whole life, twice very seriously to be point of near death, but both times he prayed for a cure, promising Mary that he would become a religious brother if he was healed. Both times he was healed and both times he put off joining an order.

Not much is known of his life because he asked for all his writings to be burned when he died – which they did.

Nonetheless, his life made such an impact on a young St. Gemma Galgani, that she prayed to him for a healing of an illness so bad it was preventing her from joining an order. He appeared to her one night and healed her, and his intercession has obtained many miracles through the ages.

Your Impact

For every order, 10% of all proceeds will go to organizations who provide resources to at risk women before and after birth.

The first is The Pregnancy Care Center of Rockford. They area a local organization to me,  providing resources and care for free to women in crisis pregnancies, from ultrasounds to parenting classes to post abortion healing.

The second is the Sisters of Life, a newer religious community founded in 1991 in New York to promote the dignity of every human life. They have houses for women to come live with them during and after their pregnancy as they get back on their feet, as well as counseling for post abortion healing, and other missions.
