Brother Zeno Zebrowski of Japan

30 Days Challenge - Day 2

My painting today is Brother Zeno Zebrowski. He was a conventual Franciscan Brother who came to Japan with St. Maximilian Kolbe. The friars there help rebuild Japan after the war. His works of charity made him a household name in Japan from the time he arrived there. Children flocked to him wherever he went. Often he was begging for the needy on the streets. When his begging was finished, he went to the poor quarters of the city to distribute all he has received.

    PS Have you thought of doing a painting of Ven. Satoko Kitahara?
