About the 'Our Lady of Mercy' Retablo Plaque
Long a popular folk art form in colonial Spanish and Mexican culture, retablos are devotional paintings depicting divine icons and symbols, particularly Catholic patron saints. Chosen as representations and guardians of particular occupations and life situations, patron saints are often turned to in times of need or to express gratitude for a blessing. Displayed in homes to honor the saint or given as gifts of fortune and inspiration, retablos reflect a beloved historical tradition and cultural artistry.
Handmade in New Mexico, this retablo plaque honors Our Lady of Mercy. An original design by the artist, her colorful art print is decoupaged upon hand-carved pine wood in traditional form. The reverse side includes a hole for hanging and a verse in her honor:
Mother of the living God, the hearts of mothers want to bestow upon their children all that they need. The world is crying, The suffering is great. I feel the cries in me when I am awake and hear them in my sleep. With your boundless compassion, I humbly ask that you open your tender arms to receive humankind under the cloak of your motherly protection. May we find in ourselves the strength and courage to move through the perils we face, and the patience, kindness, understanding and love, to care for one another in these times of fear and threat.
