MADONNA / MADONNA AND CHILD
Mary, called Madonna (My Lady) since the Middle Ages, was the mother of Jesus of Nazareth according to Christian tradition. Mary’s most common titles include The Blessed Virgin Mary, Our Lady, Mother of God, and Queen of Heaven. The conception of her Son Jesus is believed to have been an act of the Holy Spirit, which fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah that a virgin would bear a son who would be called Immanuel (God with Us). Upon her death, she was assumed bodily into Heaven as she was specially favored by God’s grace. Mary, as Mother of God, is the ultimate symbol of the love between mother and child and is also recognized as the Mother of the Catholic Church. Her veneration has grown based upon writings of saints and through apparitions of the Virgin, such as in Lourdes, Beauraing, and Fatima.
