Today's Feast of Mary the Mother of God

A mother in every way...
Mary, Mother of God, and our Mother,
pray for us
that we may be made worthy
of the promises
of Christ your Son
and our Brother!
What's your favorite image of Mary?

I do so love the picture of that wee Jesus at his mother's feet! God so human. Thank you!! Cathy

Yes, me too! I find this image, which is rather new to me, to be such a warm and inviting representation of the fullness of Mary's motherhood as well as Jesus' humanity.

Probably one of my favorite images is that which my parish has. It is a statue of Christ being held by his mother. And one day I was praying and was really looking at the statue. I noticed that Christ is pointing at his mother as well as up to Haven and his father even while his mother is pointing us toward him. I was surprised that I even noticed this since usually I sit on St. Josephs side of the church.
