“And Mary was in the temple of the Lord as a dove that is nurtured; and she received food from the hand of an angel.”
–Protogospel of James
In the Roman tradition Mary’s birth is celebrated today.
She is a source of faith, hope and charity.
A compelling benefactor.
Her goodness is extended to all.
She will crush the head of the dragon.
She answers every prayer.
Head of the Madonna by Andrea del Sarto
