Icon commissioned for the World Meeting of Families – Dublin
The Redemptoristine Nuns in Dublin were commissioned by theMost Rev. Diarmuid Martin, Archbishop of Dublin and Primate of Ireland to write the Icon for the World Meeting of Families in Ireland in August 2018.
Sr Alena and Sr Maria with Mihai Cucu Master Iconographer wrote the Icon. Every sister in the community contributed to the writing of the Icon.
We pray that under the inspiration of this Icon as it journeys around our country, more and more of us will be drawn to contemplate the infinite compassion of Jesus for all the concerns of marriage and family life in the world of today and tomorrow. We pray that many, especially young people, will be drawn to experience the liberating power of the Joy of Love Amoris Laetitia, truly as Good News.
