Loving Lupita: Adorned





Protestants largely ignore her,
except during the Christmas season. . . .
after all, Jesus had a mortal birth
and a mother who gestated him.

There's a nod at Easter to the mother
who sat at the foot of the cross
and anointed her son's body in the tomb
in ancient burial rites.

How left out she must feel the rest of the year.

The name of the artist again? I did know it and am a great admirer! So true Meri - I grew up Protestant and what barren years those were. But I am making up for it :D

I just adore this Mary, Meri! But then I love almost everything you create. I was a Protestant until I converted to Catholicism at 21 and the Baptist Church I went to thought Mary worship was blasphemous. Eight years ago I began attending an Episcopal Church and though Mary's presence is acknowledged, it isn't like when I was a practicing Catholic.

yet in the Catholic church she is a most popular saint, particularly on some countries! But this crown is so suiting - maybe the best i have seen to date!

So true! So true! I often feel that way about our Mother. Why underplay her role? It was vital and sacred.
