Images of Mary [Jun. 23rd, 2010|10:00 pm]
LJ Catholics


What is your favorite image of Mary?

Our theme next year is Mary, Seat of Wisdom and each grade is picking an image of Mary to focus on. Mary, our mother...Our Lady of the Holy Family...Our Lady of the Rosary...Our Lady of the Presentation... and Our Lady of Fatima have already been chosen, so they aren't options.

I have been searching around trying to find my favorite, and I thought you guys might have some favorites. I love Our Lady of the Southern Cross, but am still looking.

I am very attached to iconography, so I have a LOT of favorite images of the Theotokos. Two that I keep near are Our Lady of Mount Carmel, and Our Lady of Perpetual Help. Look for really old images of these icons. I'll try to post some of my favorite images of Mary in my journal sometime this week or weekend. I'm sure they probably wouldn't let you use something like Our Lady of Zeitun, but I have to admit, I helped produce a TV interview with a man who witnessed Zeitun, and seeing his photos gave me the chills. I find modern apparitions to be quite compelling emotionally.

I see that this is an old topic, but I thought I would comment anyway..

My favourites are Our Lady of Fatima, and Our Lady of Lourdes. :)
