Story Behind the Art In the painting, Mary is leaning into Jesus weeping from the overwhelming feeling of relief, and comfort she was experiencing. Our imperfect nature is expected and completely forgiven when we surrender to Jesus Christ. He knows each of us by name, and no soul is forgotten. This is a moment of complete surrender to the safe embrace of the Savior who knows our shortcomings yet continues to love us.
We can be made whole through Him and His redeeming power. His forgiveness is offered to all who will turn around when He calls our name.
