Karol Wojtyla‘s Silence

2009-04-06

The Totus Tuus exhibit contains sixty drawings depicting the forced silence of Karol Wojtyla.

Italian artist Nani Tedeschi captured the Pope’s pain during his last days.

The charcoal sketches show the agony of John Paul II….a weakness he turned into a strength.

An image the world will never forget.
 
Msgr. Mauro Parmeggiani
Secretary, Vicariate of Rome
It was that warmth and affection he showed us throughout the years, especially when he was sick.  That apparent weakness showed us how great God is.  Through human weakness, He is close to us with His love and mercy.

The Italian painter was inspired by John Paul II’s last audience on March 30, 2005.  Just three days before his death, he made an appearance before the world….his silent cry spoke volumes.

A lesson in suffering in charcoals…now on display until June.
