"Sacred Heart of Jesus" is a contemporary icon. The artist, C D Smith, has taken characteristics of traditional iconography (ie: the flat, patterned, shapes of color combined with shaded flesh tones) and interpreted them with realism and contemporary abstract painting. The figure of Christ he developed using the Shroud of Turin, Christ Pantocrator, and other ancient icons as reference. The Greek letters, Alpha and Omega, indicate the divinity of Christ, who appears to glow, as the "Light of the World;" and rays of His Divine Mercy pour forth from His pierced heart. Spiritual benefits associated with devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus are numerous.
