"Heaven's Call to the Family" is an original painting by Mark Sanislo

"Heaven's Call to the Family"

 is an original painting
by Mark Sanislo
Approx. size 4' x 6'

Created for the  "Year of the Rosary"

"Heaven's Call" - In 1917, The Holy Family appeared to visionaries Jacinta, Francisco and Lucia in Fatima Portugal.  The only officially recognized Holy Family apparition.

"The Call" - The message of Fatima is a call to prayer, pray in our homes, pray as a family, prayer from our hearts.  This call is to ALL families of ALL countries, of ALL races, of ALL religions.

"The Family" - Praying together as a family inspires family unity, peace within our homes, peace in our hearts, and peace in the world.

The painting depicts the Holy Family appearing to the world as they did in 1917 to the visionaries. The Blessed Mother Mary's Immaculate Heart, the Child Jesus blessing the world, as well as Saint Joseph blessing the world.

The Child Jesus is holding the Rosary where children are depicted reaching heaven through the prayer of the Rosary.  Beneath the children is the world, families, children, elderly, handicapped and essentially the whole world. 

Fatima Portugal is represented by the image of the Basilica of Our Lady of Fatima, by the cobblestones walkways, to the far left the silhouette of the olive tree; the tree under which the children sat, awaiting the coming of the Blessed Mother.  That tree remains yet today in the Cova Da Iria. You will also notice the lighted candles - which represent the nightly prayer vigils at Fatima. As well as, the rosaries and occasional umbrellas that Fatima pilgrims might carry during their time in Fatima.

Sister Lucia the only living visionary, she is holding the pictures of Saint Jacinta and Saint Francisco.  His Holiness Pope John Paul II is extending his hand to invite all to prayer for peace.  Finally the crucifix of Our Savior Jesus Christ wrapped with the Heavenly request for "Peace through Prayer". 

May this painting inspire you and your family to pray together.  Unite your family at prayer before meals, unite in prayer of the rosary together, start with one decade a day, Mary will lead you the rest of the way.
