A mom of seven discusses the ins and outs of raising kids in a Catholic home with all the modern world issues knocking at the door.
The Annunciation makes such a great subject for painting. I enjoyed scrolling through the paintings. Thanks. This is one of the great moments in the liturgical year in my opinion. Anchoress had a really good blog on it today. Check it out if you get a chance. Many thanks to the Blessed Mother for accepting.
Thanks, Manny. You wouldn't believe how much art there is on this subject. I just chose a small bit to put up here. It is a beautiful, powerful moment. I know Mary was given special grace, but I find it helpful to ponder her humanity as a woman going through such a life as she did. I can't imagine how much faith she had to bear it all, both the joyful and the crushing sorrow.
