Sebastian Conea, St. Clement's Water Miracle

Circa 1700-1721
Fresco
Church of St. Clement, Rome

The Golden Legend relates that when St. Clement was sent to the penal colony he learned that water had to be carried in from six miles away. He led the people in prayer that a source of water should be found within the colony. As he raised his eyes he saw a lamb pointing to the place where he should strike with his pickaxe. Sure enough, water flowed from that place.
