Narrative: In the beginning a child came to us, for us, for our salvation and was nurtured by boundless love. It was the Blessed Mother, Whom the archangels honor and virtues glorify, that laid the earliest foundation of selfless love and devotion for the Son of God. From the time that Archangel Gabriel informed Mary of God’s design until Her Blessed Child’s death on Calvary, Her love was steadfast and unfailing. The image of the Madonna is a recognizable symbol of the purity and divine aspect of motherhood, at once sacrificial and complete.
Through this image, Janet McKenzie quietly and with reverence celebrates the lifelong spiritual union between mother and child. She presents the Blessed Virgin and the Holy Child lovingly, with the Madonna monumentally protective and sweetly tender. Her child, Our Savior, is wrapped in Her arms - as He is in Her love.

Remember, most loving Virgin Mary,
never was it heard
that anyone who turned to you for help
was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence,
though burdened by my sins,
I run to your protection
for you are my mother.
Mother of the Word of God,
do not despise my words of pleading
but be merciful and hear my prayer. Amen.

... they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him. (Matthew 2:11)
