Mother of Japan, Sunday of the Third Week of Lent








"Eve believed the devil
and the world perished!
Mary put her faith in the Angel of God
and the world was saved!"

St. Lawrence of Brindisi

How lovely this one is, Micki. I really enjoy seeing Mary and Jesus depicted in as many different ways as this world has to offer.
Best Regards, Lynneda

The Oriental way of painting is one of simple loveliness...I especially love the sweet tenderness of little Jesus toward His Mother.
