THE ICON OF WORLD MEETING OF FAMILIES This Icon of the Holy Family was painted by Romanian iconographer Mihai Cucu. He was assisted by the Redemptoristine Sisters of the Monastery of St Alphonsus, Iona Road, Dublin. It was truly a work of their prayer and of love. We see in the centre the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph. Flanking it are those two Gospel narratives: the Raising of Jairus’ Daughter and the Wedding Feast of Cana.
