Pocket Saint - Our Lady of Mercy

Our Lady of Mercy Retablo

Holy mother of Mercy, all of humanity is suffering. We are plunged into confusion, fear, sickness, hunger poverty, greed, injustice and wars. I humbly ask that you wrap all of humanity in your mantle so that we may be guided by your companionate wisdom and released from this suffering. May we move forward with courage, acceptance and hope. May our hearts grow in wisdom. May peace be within us.

Retablos are a devotional folk art form from Mexico and the Southwest US. They are small paintings on wood of Catholic saints and angels. To create these affordable heart-felt paintings of saints, angels and blessings, Lynn Garlick hand carves and paints her original designs on the traditionally used ponderosa pine planks. Then she decoupages high quality prints of her originals onto pine boards, in an old school technique used for the Italian altar screens of medieval Europe.
