I have yet to see another painting which evokes the feelings I have when I see this one, I am not religious at all but I don't think that matters,I love it for it's beauty, not what it represents.
It was bought by Glasgow City Council in 1952 for the controversial sum of 8,200 (about $15,500). Last year it was voted by a very large margin as Glasgow's favourite painting. (don't tell anyone but I voted twice !!!)
If you come across the pond, go to the Dali museum in Florida. It is awesome.
My favorite is anything by Marc Rothko.

Yes, so do I. . . the emotional impact of that painting is incredible!

after so many years of studying art and visiting museums and galleries, I can no longer even begin to name a favorite painting. . . but when I was in High School (as an art major, of course), I was in love with Rosa Bohheur's "the horse fair". . . did a reproduction of it for a class project.
