In 2008, Stephen B. Whatley received the moving request for permission to reproduce his painting 'Jezu Ufam Tobie' (2002) throughout the CD cover of a new musical arrangement of the Divine Mercy Chaplet.
Written by Susan Hookong-Taylor; who along with her friend Ana Da Costa, perform through voices like angels. Accompanied by George Anstey (bass) and Mark Joseph (percussion/cymbal washes), this heavenly CD was recorded at Round Sound and Number 9 Studios, Toronto, Canada and produced by Shuebedoo Music; for Deepwatersound.ca.
In December 2008, Susan wrote to Stephen "...Many people have said that the CD visually is a medidtation on the Divine Mercy and that your painting is a tremendous aid to prayer..."
'Jezu Ufam Tobie' is Polish for Jesus, 'I Trust in You' - and originates from the life and visions of Christ to the Polish nun, Sister Faustina, in the first half of the 20th Century - and now known as St Faustina.
