Oh my Jesus, since I cannot now receive you under the Sacramental Veil, I beseech Thee, with a heart full of love and longing, to come spiritually into my soul through the Immaculate Heart of Your most Holy Mother and abide with me forever.

Painted as a commission-gift for a priest, this painting has touched the hearts of many already. The priest’s specially-designed chalice presented to him for his ordination, had been shaped into the form of a rose cupping the Precious Blood of Jesus.

The stem of the chalice is dotted with tiny thorns as it comes down to the double-sided Immaculate Heart of Mary and Sacred Heart of Jesus. In the details of the roses encircling Mary’s heart and forming the Crown of Thorns on Jesus’ heart on the other side, are diamonds from the priest’s grandmother, a heritage passed down, cementing and celebrating the sacrifices of the priesthood and the joys of family.

On the base of the chalice is sometimes called the unity cross – Mary presses herself closely to Jesus and hold a chalice up to his heart to collect his Precious Blood before it spills on the ground. On the opposite side of the base is the passage, written in the background, from the Song of Songs: “A garden closed, a fountain sealed” referencing the Church. That through the holy priesthood, the priest takes care of the Church of Christ, hidden in the mystery of the Trinity.

Above the chalice, is the Host, the Greek letters IHS embossed into the bread, symbolized the Holy Name of Jesus as the first three letters of the Greek spelling of Jesus. The Host shines forth as the Light of the World, bringing the immortal love of God to our dark world.

The whole of this painting shows us the route to Jesus through Mary. Do we take the leap and follow Him as she did?

    The details of this chalice are amazing! Monica has done a great job, as usual, bringing out the beauty of our Catholic faith visually and in words with her beautiful description of this print. I am a huge fan of hers!

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.
