Aerosol spay on canvas, 3 coffee.
Inspired by the life of Saint Veronica Giuliani.
Veronica wrote in her Diary:
“Seeing the great agony that my Lord was in, I begged Him to give Me His Crown. He placed it on my head; I suffered so much, I thought I was dying.”
Another time, Jesus came and showed Saint Veronica Giuliani a Chalice full of liquid.
She wrote that it seemed as if the liquid was on fire. The Lord told her, “If you want to be Mine, you must taste this liquid for My Love.”
She later wrote that when He placed just a few drops of the liquid on her tongue, she was filled with such indescribable bitterness and sadness, she thought she would die. Her tongue became dry and from that day on, she could not taste anything.
On Christmas Day, the Infant Jesus appeared to Veronica.
He sent an arrow deep into her heart. When she awakened, she found her heart bleeding.
The burning flame roaring inside her heart was so painful, she could not rest day or night.
On April 5, 1697, Veronica had a vision of Jesus Crucified, accompanied by His Mother Our Lady of Sorrows. She experienced the crowning of thorns, the scourging, the crucifixion and her own death.
At other times, she would levitate up into the tree in the cloister gardens, the other nuns saying she looked like a little bird in flight. Upon receiving permission from her Superior, she fasted on bread and water alone. And she was tormented by the Devil for three years.
