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.
The Sacred Heart is a religious devotion to Jesus’ physical heart as the representation of the divine love for humanity. The Sacred Heart is often depicted in Christian art as a flaming heart shining with divine light, pierced by the lance-wound, surrounded by a crown of thorns, surmounted by a cross and bleeding. Sometimes the image is over the body of Jesus with his wounded hands pointing at the heart. The wounds and crown of thorns allude to the manner of Jesus
