While I’m away, a little selection of my favorite pieces of art from the Louvre
"Mary does not replace God. Mary said, “my soul MAGNIFIES the Lord.” Meaning that when we go to Mary, we get a bigger, a new, a different perspective of our God." - Fr. Celsus
Art source: Vienne Rea
Life goes on; this must be one of my replacements. Lordy but I’m getting old!

tempera on panel, 1907-1908
