Ever wonder what a saint might look like if they lived in today’s world? Franciscan Sister of Christian Charity Sister Cecilia Joy Kugel interviews a Columbus, Ohio artist who did her own depiction of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Gracie Morbitzer from The Modern Saints by Gracie brings this vision to life. Her “Our Lady of Guadalupe” and “St. Francis and St. Clare” are featured in this video along with others.
“In these paintings, I have tried to make a point to prove that fact. I have corrected ethnicities to show the Church’s more widespread, though hidden, diversity, I have given each a character or personality and a real human expression, and I have given each a style and a modern twist. ” -Gracie Morbitzer
