Some commentaries about the HEARTist:

from Fr. Arturo Sanchez, SDB Provincial Superior – Don Bosco South

Paintings are dense essays that convey a multitude of meanings. HAPAG hits 
different people differently. But many experience a common feeling – it is a 
gospel within a frame – a visual medium with a deep spiritual effect. At a 
time when people are still reeling from the faith-breaking controversy spun 
by a reinterpretation of Da Vinci's last supper, Joey Velasco presents his 
own interpretation. This time in writing, and without assuming the authority 
of a theologian, without waving a license of authenticity from the art 
world, Joey presents what has been his faith-enriching experience. It could 
also be ours.

Let only your heart enter. Let only your heart see. You will see precious 
lotus blooming in mud. Let your heart listen. You will hear precious 
revelations from the lives of 12 extraordinary children and from the heart 
of an extraordinary author and painter. Only a hardened heart will leave 
this sacred space not wanting to walk with the author and the children...to
