J. Ponce painted this spectacular rendition of the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ.“Shortly after my ordination in 1965, I was assigned to our missions in Mexico. I received a call one day from a woman who lived in one of the local red light districts. One of the prostitutes with whom she worked was dying. The lady who called told me that she would be standing outside in front of the building where the dying person was staying. 

The heat was overwhelming. It was 112 degrees! I drove to the location dressed in a white cassock. I went into the building and was led to a woman who was in great anguish.


She was lying on the floor and did not appear to be coherent enough to confess her sins, but the very fact that she asked for a priest meant that she had the desire to repent. I prayed over her, administered the Sacrament of Anointing, and gave her Last Rites.

She was immediately at peace, and she died shortly thereafter. I was happy to be there for her. And why not? Everyone with a contrite heart deserves a second chance. God bless her soul! May she rest in peace.”
