In May, 1972, a madman severely damaged Michelangelos premier creation, the Pieta, which depicts Mary holding the crucified Christ, and the best artists in the world carefully restored it. In this classically beautiful spiritual reflection, Gire says that in a similar way, God himself carefully restores us, his premier creations.
