This is another of the Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary paintings that popped into my head during adoration. Originally I had wanted to do a nativity scene since this is the only title that deals with motherhood and Christ.

But every time I drew the nativity it looked terrible.

So I brought my frustrations to adoration and later when I was looking for a new idea I found the sketch.

I loved it for mother of Christ because it’s such a sweet motherly pose. Mary smiling down at the newly born Jesus. Her mantle is blue symbolizing royalty and heaven and her dress is red symbolizing Jesus’ future Passion. Similarly Jesus’ halo has the red cross, which always symbolizes His Passion.

Jesus came into the world so that He could die for our sins. That was always the end goal.

But in this sweet image we can remember that He came into the world as a baby first, and grew up in it for 30 years before starting His ministry. We can remember that He has a mother, one who raised Him and taught Him all things.

Mary watched Jesus grow up. She lived with Him.

Can you imagine living with Jesus during His earthly life? It’s worth pondering. And going to Mary about. ask her what it was like.

Your Impact

For every order, 10% of all proceeds will go to organizations who provide resources to at risk women before and after birth.

The first is The Pregnancy Care Center of Rockford. They area a local organization to me,  providing resources and care for free to women in crisis pregnancies, from ultrasounds to parenting classes to post abortion healing.

The second is the Sisters of Life, a newer religious community founded in 1991 in New York to promote the dignity of every human life. They have houses for women to come live with them during and after their pregnancy as they get back on their feet, as well as counseling for post abortion healing, and other missions.
