A gift from the Grand Commander of the Order of Malta

Frŕ Ludwig Hoffmann von Rumerstein brought a gift for all the members of the Brotherhood of Blessed Gérard in South Africa. What better time to give it than during the Holy season of Christmas?

The gift comes in the form of a photograph of an old painting discovered recently in Amalfi, Italy. While a building was being renovated, the builders discovered this painting under centuries old layers of paint. It is thought to be a portrait of Blessed Gérard himself. This valuable piece of art has been rescued from the demolishers, restored and preserved for posterity.
