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!
When we say GLOBAL, we mean GLOBAL!
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.
Thank you Sr. Allessandra Pulina
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.
Our friend Markéta Z. from the Czech Republic gifted her parish priest as well as her godchildren with JBG icons.
The Baptist is a 60in print and the children received their own personal images.
From the author Diego Consales
The book is finished and i had the great honor to present it in the same place of the presentation of the palio/drappellone!! With the Mayor of Siena and all the people. Like a painter!
I send you the image of the cover and the page that introduce the pages dedicated to Fr.John.
The name of the book (in latin) is: IN HOC PALIO VINCES
In the future i have this project: to write a little book about the strange john-experience at the palio and my chase to speak with him after 20 years.

“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.”
