Happy "Mary Mother of God" feast to you 2015

Yes it's January first. Yes its 2015. Yes its a new year. But for us Catholics it is the feast of our Blessed Virgin Mary. It is the feast of Mary, Mother of God. Since the early second century there has been wall paintings giving honour to Mary. I have looked through many works of art depicting mother and child. From the birth of Christ until his death and after - such as the Pieta, etc. I have found that I like Titian ( or Tiziano Vecellio) and his work "Mary with Child , and saints" the painting was done around 1510 AD.

So we give thanks to God the Father today as we celebrate the holy vessel that would be the Mother of Jesus our Lord.
