One year ago this month we reported about an enthusiastic parishioner from the Sanctuary of Mercy Church, in Borja, Spain, who “helped” restore a deteriorating church fresco depicting Christ as Ecce Homo. As it turned out, the restoration was so popular it became a tourist attraction, raising over $66,000 for the church and inspiring a line of merchandise featuring the image. The most recent news: the parishioner, an 81-year old retiree, will lose her amateur status next week when she signs deal giving her 49 percent of the merchandise profits.
