Spiritual Vessel

6×8″ oil paint on primed canvas sheet; use ‘comment’ below to inquire.

One of the many titles of Mary, the Mother of Jesus, is “Spiritual Vessel” from the Litany of Loreto. I like to think of her as that hollow reed of God through which He breathed His music of grace for the world. (A thought gained from  author Caryll Houselander.)
