Father Lumino Guzman

Sepia ink drawing (originally 9x14 inches,
but since trimmed to eliminate rough edges).

This remarkable sketch, though unsigned, is probably the work of G.H. Randolf, ship's steward, HMS Howard. The Howard visited Belau Belau on June 9, 1958, and remained in port for approximately six weeks. Guzman would have been 90 years old in 1958. His was reportedly very frail at that time, and, indeed, he died in the summer of the following year. The Christ-like image to the left appeared -- some say miraculously -- in 1978, causing the drawing to be of some interest to the Holy Office in Rome.
