Specifically, the effeminate Hyla-influenced Divine Mercy image affectionately coined "Laser Jesus" by Digi and I.Pew! Pew! Pew!If I wanted my Jesus purty, I prefer he look more like Sam Beam.My personal preference is this image...At least here Jesus looks more closely like the original Divine Mercy image created for St. Faustina by Eugene … [Read more...]
