John Paul II and Stabat Mater







Stabat Mater
June 2007
Mosaic
The Chapel of the University Clinic King Umberto I
Viale Regina Elena, 324
Rome


The Committee which instructed the work for the Chapel for the University Clinic Umberto I in Rome wanted a work to represent the Servant of God Pope John Paul II because of his many years of illness and the way in which he bore his afflictions.

Here we see the late Pope taking the place of the Apostle John in the scene of the Stabat Mater.
