A Virgin a Day: Day Eight

Our Lady of the Arts -

Mary, the Blessed Virgin in Christian tradition,
surely must be considered 
Our Lady of the Arts.

She has inspired frescoes on walls in ancient churches, 
innumerable sculptures,
gold-leafed religious icons galore.

She speaks to us without words,
heart to heart,
bidding us to bore down to our essence
and share it freely with the world.

A Virgin a Day

p.s Please visit Meri's Musings
to see today's tribute to John Lennon.
He died on this date in 1980.

If only we could hear that invitation to "bore down" more often and more clearly!

Love the mix of old and new (using the word, 'new' in a very loose way). So much content in the image and the words. Powerful!
