Faces of Mary in Honor of the Assumption

I remember that as a child I drew our Blessed Mother over and over. I tried to make her as lovely as possible. Over the centuries she has been a favorite subject of a number of artists…more talented than I’ll ever be. She has been portrayed to represent various cultures. The other year my retreat was centered on one of the most famous sculptures in the world: the “Pieta.” For my talks on Mary, I put together an album of depictions of her. Today I’ll share with you some of my favorite ones.
