This photograph was taken by the Kenyan nun Ana Alí in Rome, on September 8 (Feast of the Nativity of Mary), 1987, when the Lord appeared to her, transmitting to her a calling for the conversion of the world, and an exhortation to maintain the devotion to the Eucharist. The apparitions to the nun were to continue until 1991.

Jesus permitted Sister Anna to take His photograph on various occasions of His appearance, and in subsequent revelations gave reasons fo making Himself visible now in our time.

* "Listen to me. I am above this earth. I allow myself to be seen after many warnings"
* "I make myself visible in order to bring back souls."
* "I love mankind and I make myself visible in order to give my warnings of mercy"
* "Many do not listen to me because they do not believe in my reality"
