Inside Abraham Law Centre
Within the walls of the Basilica of Saint Mary of the Angels in Italy is the tiny chapel which once belonged to St. Francis of Assisi. On the exterior is a fresco by Johann Friedrich Overbeck (c.1829) depicting an event when Christ and the Beloved appeared before St. Francis and the Seraphic mother, Clare of Assisi, in the year 1211. The fresco was entitled “Miracle of the Roses” and was recreated in the chapel at Abraham Centre as a modern rendition of the original. It was painted by Louisiana Artist, Stacy LaFleur in 2011.
“The chapel is dedicated to my father and mother, Sammy and Fayetta Abraham. Whoever shall enter this place will honor thy God, for this is holy ground. Let all who wish to pray be welcome, and find comfort in time of despair.”
