Virgin A Day

I do not know the artist. But when I saw it on a Mary devotion site I loved it.

dear one,

each morning we have thrown open the doors to our hearts.

we have called out glory, love, compassion.

day after day we have set out welcoming chairs in the

house of belonging.

lifting the veil of sacred existence.

beveled off the edges of difference and distance

to see more deeply the

unbearable beauty of simply being


for this and so much more i thank you,

and look forward to our forever

one of my very favorite images.
I have used this in some of my own art.

Yes, it is a glorious image. I think that he must have had a direct link to heaven. I don't know any of his paintings of the Madonna that are not incredible but this one is phenomenal. Thank you.

What others have said her is how I feel about all of Boguereau's art. I have a print of his in my bedroom. Thanks.
