Artist Mark Sanislo and Fr. Robert J. Fox Present the oil painting of
Mother Angelica to the Poor Clare Nuns at Our Lady of Angeles Monastery
and Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament Hanceville, Alabama
Oil on Canvas 36" x 42"
The portrait of Mother Anelica's painting is located in Castle San Miguel, for pilgrims to see on their visit.
Here is a early morining picture of the Castle before morning prayer with the Nuns.
Both the interior and exterior of the Castle call to mind the valor of knights and the courage of saints in times past. Castle San Miguel houses the Gift Shop of El Niño, a conference room, and catered eating facilities.
The Great Hall is decorated with suits of armor and genuine antique furnishings. Also on display are several actual pages from Medieval manuscripts. Specially commissioned statues of Saint Michael the Archangel and Saint Joan of Arc adorn the Great Hall, serving as an inspiration to “fight the good fight of the faith and win for yourself the eternal life to which you were called” (1 Timothy 6:12).
The Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament and Monastery with 13th century architecture was founded by Rev. Mother Mary Angelica in 1999, is home to over forty Poor Clare nuns whose vocation is to perpetually adore Our Lord in the Most Holy Eucharist. The sales help provide for the needs of the Poor Clares, who rely solely upon God's Providence for all of their necessities.
