The Social Justice Ministry from Christ, Prince of Peace Church, St. Louis MO. presented “Made in the Image of God” display for their Advent and Christmas season, 2022. It was a reflection on how we are all made in the image of God even though we may not look alike and be of different ethnic and cultural groups. Of course, JBG was included!
We are thrilled to have JBG published in the missionary magazine, Andare alla Genti which is published by the Consolata Missionary Sisters in Italy. The Hopi Madonna and Child (known as the Barn Madonna) is the 1st of 6 images they will feature on the back pages of their 2023 publications.
We are very excited to have JBG icon reproductions exhibited in Madison. The icons will be displayed through the 1st week of January 2023. Thank you to the team that brought this work out into another part of our world as we continue to fulfill Fr. John’s mission.
On Dec. 18, 2022 JBG ICON finished the 3rd session of presenting John and his work. (via Zoom )He was received with open arms as 10 icon reproductions grace the walls of one of the chapels at The Bethel Lutheran Church. Thank you Dana, Ann and Kathy for hosting us.
In 2014 JBG had an exhibit in the heart of his beloved Roma, Piazza del Popolo at the Church of Santa Maria. This banner hung above the entrance to the gallery and welcomed Romans and tourists to a feast of Giuliani icons. It was a special moment in time for him and those who assisted him in this big adventure.
“My son, I love you. I desire you to know who I am. I am the ever-Virgin Mary; Mother of the true God who gives life and maintains it’s existence. He created all things. He is in all places. He is Lord of Heaven and Earth and I desire a church in the place where your people may experience my compassion. All those who sincerely ask for my help in their work and in their sorrows will know their mother’s near in this place. Here I will see their fears and I will console men and they will be at peace.”
