St. Paschal Baylon – Tiepolo

This image, which shows Saint Paschal Baylon kneeling with folded hands, is a detail from a larger work by Giovanni Tiepolo called: The Vision of Saint Paschal Baylon. In the larger artwork, an angel is holding a shining monstrance with a host. St. Paschal is adoring the Blessed Sacrament in rapt adoration. Paschal Baylon was a holy brother in the Friars Minor in sixteenth-century Spain, known for his great devotion to Our Lord in the Holy Eucharist.
