K. Beuron Pieta, Saturday of the Second Week of Lent

Let us ask Mary to
hold us as we go through Lent.

HE died for me
I live for HIM.

The Latin words in Our Lady's halo say, "Queen of Martyrs." The words at the bottom of the card are a Latin translation of part of verse 12 of chapter 1 of Lamentations. The words mean:

"... Oh, all of you who pass by, look and see if there is any sorrow like my sorrow ...".

I love The Pietas, Micki (excuse the spelling!) in both art and sculpture, even though it breaks my heart. This is a glorious card, full of intricate detail and rich colours. Thank You.
Best Regards, Lynneda

This card is beautiful already but with the multiple borders, it is absolutely stunning. I think these images are from murals. Wouldn't it be wonderful to actually see the murals?

Thanks again.

Not so fast Miki - nothing to preclude you from responding in the combox.

Sometimes we all have to suffer.

Micki said...

John - There certainly was no sorrow like her sorrow.

Jackie - Thanks for alwalys stopping by and leaving a word or two.

Lynneda - I'm the one who had the spelling mistake...thanks to a good friend who pointed it's now fixed :-)

Kay - Yes, let's get a group together and go see those murals. Fabulous.

A Simple Sinner - (I was going to just write the first letters of your name, then thought better of it :-) I answered on your comments. Thanks for the invite to do that.

I love this picture. I am quite surprised you posted this one because we did Stations of the Cross and this was the one I found poignant. I wonder why?!

I read your answers to the meme. Oh, you are cute and funny, Micki!

Easter - I'm late in replying to your comment. Thank you for all your sweet and oh so comforting words. Your children are so blessed to have you for a mother and a model. Continued joy and health now that everyone is over their illness.
