Marian image for January 2008

I just realized–i never explained why i post an image (usually a painting or an icon) of the Virgin Mary every month. There are basically three reasons:

  • To give honor to the All-Holy Mother of God and ours.
  • I want to help in a small way to make reparation for the blasphemies and sacrileges against her and her images.
  • For all women who are treated shamefully in our world today by the unfair choice of abortion, lust inducing ads & fashion, pornography, prostitution, the spirit of fornication and violence. I want to present the Blessed Virgin as the Queen for women to emulate and for men to respect.

So here is the image for this month:

Madonna with Sleeping Child (c.1465-1470)

by Andrea Mantegna
