When I set out to paint the Via Dolorosa, I knew that Mother Teresa needed to be in the painting. Behind the modern Christian man are those from history that either defended or persecuted Christianity. In my mind, Mother Teresa defended Christianity by showing one of the best examples of how a single individual can be a light on a hill. She was not large in physical stature. She did not have a lot of money. There was nothing about her to get your attention other than her deep love for Jesus Christ that overflowed to the rest of the world. She demonstrated to all of us the essence of Christianity by offering unconditional love to the poor and sick in the ghettos of Calcutta, India. For this reason I included her in the painting and did a special video dedicated to her faith.
