The fascinating story surrounding the original work of art commissioned by St Faustina and painted in Vilnius, Lithuania, by an uncelebrated artist is finally being told in a new documentary, The Original Image of Divine Mercy (Now on DVD – see below)
The Original Image of Divine Mercy features exclusive interviews with first-hand eye-witnesses, as well as with Bishop Robert Barron of Los Angeles (Word On Fire), George Weigel (biographer of Saint Pope John Paul II), comedian Jim Gaffigan, Grammy award-winning musician Harry Connick Jr., Cardinal Stanisław Dziwisz of Krakow, Cardinal Christoph Schönborn of Vienna, Fr. Michael Gaitley MIC, author Fr. Leo Maasburg (spiritual director and confessor to Blessed Mother Teresa), and many others.
Conversations with comedian Jim Gaffigan (The Jim Gaffigan Show), and multiple Grammy and Emmy Award-winning musician Harry Connick, Jr. (American Idol) give a unique artists’ perspective.
This independent film was shot throughout the U.S. and Europe (NYC, Rome, Vilnius, Vienna, Turin, Philly, etc). The documentary includes never-before-seen close-up images of the original painting in Vilnius (Lithuania), the permanent home of the Original Image. The Original Image of Divine Mercy has been officially endorsed by Cardinal Christoph Schönborn, Archbishop of Vienna and president of the World Apostolic Congress on Mercy (WACOM), by Gintaras Grušas, Archbishop of Vilnius, Lithuania, and by the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization.
This film has been called “The Hallmark of the Holy Year” and was screened over 3000 times at parishes and theaters around the world between December 08, 2015 and November 20, 2016.
