Name this Saint

Do you love contests? I do, and even better than entering one is hosting one! Whoever can name the saint in this picture, and give a brief explanation of what the image represents will have a chance to win either a copy of The Glories of Mary by St. Alphonsus de Liquori or a copy of The Imitation of Christ by Thomas a Kempis, or The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ by Anne Catherine Emmerich; your choice. (Books will be shipped directly from the publisher to the winner's address). Ready, set, go!
