    • The painting is from the ceiling of the church in the town where my grandfather grew up (although, I don’t think it existed when he was a young man). The local fisherman venerate this Madonna fanatically.

    • They (present tense) believe she protects them and brings them fish! She lights their way back to safe harbor. If it falls right, I bring my group to her feast celebration in October. It is emotional and spellbinding! You will believe too when you are in the presence of the devotees.
