Our St. Teresa of Calcutta Commemorative portrait canvas in a black and gold frame portrays the new Saint in her pious trust in our Lord and the ardency of her love for Him. Celebrate this holy woman's canonization and order for yourself or as a perfect personal gift to a friend, relative, or religious who has a devotion to Mother Teresa! Our canvas displays a glowing image of Christ's humble servant and spouse, who gave her life to love Jesus in the poorest of the poor. This special commemorative framed canvas includes a new coat of arms designed in celebration of St. Teresa of Calcutta’s canonization, symbolizing Mother Teresa's vocation to love and service: the blue shield (Marian color) with three stripes represents the Missionaries of Charity habit, modeled after a sari that poor sweeper women would wear; Jesus' words in the Gospel of John, "I thirst," encompass Mother Teresa's mission to quench Christ's thirst for souls, which she had written beside the main chapel crucifix of the Missionaries of Charity; the flame of love depicts Mother Teresa's burning love for Jesus and her intense dedication to serving Jesus despite spiritual dryness; and a cross with a heart symbolizes her frequent meditation on Jesus' love and thirst for souls, especially while hanging upon the cross, and her order's mission to console the heart of Jesus through authentic love of neighbor.
Saint Mother Teresa of Calcutta entered a contemplative religious order as a young woman in 1928. After being fully professed, she received a "call within a call" to serve those on the streets of India, still remaining consecrated to God. As many young women followed her to serve the poor, the group eventually was approved by the Vatican to become the Missionaries of Charity. Mother Teresa traveled the world, spreading her mission of love. Despite receiving great honors from the world, her joy and mission still flowed from her Bridegroom, Jesus Christ.
This particular item is an archival-quality giclée canvas in a beautiful black and gold frame. Handcrafted in Steubenville, Ohio, this touching devotional piece is sure to be treasured for years to come!
Nelson framed canvases are second only to the original masterpieces themselves! The ornate frames support our breathtaking giclee religious canvases. Giclee is a french word that means "sprayed ink," and it refers to our museum-quality printing process whereby 8 different colored inks combine to create millions of colors that are slowly sprayed into canvas material. This high-tech method of art reproduction offers the highest possible fidelity to the original work and results in a clear depiction with colors as good (or sometimes better) than the original painting. Under archival conditions, giclee canvases have a total color fidelity guarantee for 70-100 years.
For the faithful Catholic that wishes their sacred art to be blessed with holy water: canvases are sparingly water repellant, so while a typical blessing should not damage the canvas whatsoever, those who favor more robust uses of holy water should take caution near the art. ;)
