The Divine Mercy image by Eugene Kazimirowski in Vilnius (commonly known simply as “the Vilnius image”) was painted under the supervision of St. Faustina Kowalska and her confessor, Bl. Fr. Michael Sopoćko. The image was venerated publicly for the first time in 1935 during the closing celebration of the 1900th Jubilee of Redemption.
The image of the Virgin Mary was miraculously imprinted on the tilma, or apron, of St. Juan Diego after Our Lady appeared to him on Tepeyac Hill in 1531. The image is rich in symbolism including the stars on her dress, sash, the moon, and the rays of sunlight surrounding the Blessed Mother, reminiscent of the “woman clothed with the sun” of Revelations 12:1.
