Reflection on Art
In the image, Mary holds Baby Jesus close to her heart. In the foreground is a field of Queen Anne’s Lace. Strong and supportive St. Joseph is walking behind them, protecting them from marauders that may try to take them by surprise. This art teaches, without words, about virtues we should strive for in order to make ours a holier family.
