This original composition is a work in progress at the time of the photo. This oil sketch portrays two Maryknoll Sisters, Maura Clark and Ita Ford, Dorothy Kazel, an Ursaline nun, and a lay missioner Jean Donavon, as well as Archbishop Oscar Romero of San Salvador, all who worked for the Catholic Church in El Salvador. The Sisters were captured and murdered by Salvadoran Army Soldiers during civil unrest (Dec. 2 1980) in the South American country. Bishop Oscar Romero was assassinated (March 24, 1980) in a hospital chapel in El Salvador during the celebration of mass, and thus he is portrayed as spilling the wine from the chalice, symbolizing the spilling of his own blood. This collage style painting represents modern day prophets, martyrs who gave their lives for  the propagation of the faith. This oil painting is one of a series of four designed and painted for Msgr. Anthony Mara, St. Anthony of Padua Church,
Dunmore, Pa. in 1998.

Below is the finished composition now hanging in the church:
