|Lord of Miracles painting in Peru|
Years ago, Rocky and I were visiting the St. Jude shrine in Baltimore and we stopped in the gift shop. They had this small crucifix and I bought it. The Latin American volunteer gave me a quizzical look and asked, "You know about this crucifix?" I said I thought it was a Senor de los Milagros crucifix and the original had been painted by an African slave in Peru. He beamed at me and was happy to sell it to us. This and my San Damiano are the two favorite crucifixes that I own.
