Virgin a Day ~ Day 6

I saw this painting in another post this weekend.  You can read the whole article here, as it is in a Catholic publication, and I realize not everyone is interested in that.  Although the story of how the painting came to be is quite interesting. 

Morgan Weistling "Kissing the Face of God"

There are plenty more Virgins to be seen at  recuerda mi corazon, where the rest of the gang is posting their images of Mary.  Stop in, you will be happy you did. 


  1. I love this. I see all of humankind as a representation of God, In His Image. All women are Mary. I felt this right away when coming here. Happy Day 6.


  2. What a beautiful, love and light-filled Mary this is. I linked to the article and found it fascinating. Thanks.

  3. I don't believe I have ever seen a kissing Madonna before. Tender...lovely...holy...

    My Lady Comfort

  4. This is what I would envision as how it really looked. It is such a 'human' rendition of the Madonna and child. And, so very loving and tender. Mary was quite young when she had Jesus. I call this, perfection!
    I'm off to read about the image now. Thanks!

  5. Oh Shannon I love this. I am going to go read that article......

  6. Oh what a wonderful story of this beautiful painting. I am going to post that article on Facebook and our team page...thanks as always.
