“Each century has its own way of portraying it. In 1934 in Vilnius, the image of Jesus as seen in a vision by a nun was painted on a canvas. XXI century provides us with new technological possibilities, such as virtual reality, 3D scanning and modelling, which we used in this project”, – the team shared.

Vilnius – the City of Mercy
Boasting picturesque churches and narrow cobbled streets, Vilnius is a vibrant city of contrasts. Known throughout the Catholic world as a major destination for pilgrims, Vilnius has embraced the digital age in becoming a hi-tech hub and is showcasing its use of innovative technologies in different areas, including religion.
Almost all of Lithuania’s history can be told in its churches, so it is no surprise that the country has a deep tradition as a pilgrimage destination. The path of Mercy that can be found here begins with the special works of St. Faustina and the Blessed Father St. Michael Sopoćko, who lived in Vilnius and spread the message of God’s Mercy to the world.
