I created this collage in honor of today's Feast Day...
"The Annunciation of the Lord"
The Annunciation is "the Christian celebration of the announcement by the angel Gabriel to the Virgin Mary that she would conceive and become the mother of Jesus, the Son of God..." ~https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Annunciation
It is a little late this year because March 25th, (9 months until Dec. 25th "The Birth of our Lord") fell on Good Friday which meant that we would be celebrating Jesus's conception and death on the same day, therefore, it was transferred to the first day after the Easter Octave.
It's also my favorite Feast day because it is the day that I came into the Catholic Church. One of the main reasons I became interested in religion is because of the many hours of art history classes studying religious artwork in college. The Annunciation images in particular called me to Jesus through Mary. After college, I completed the RCIA program and was Baptized & Confirmed at the Easter Vigil, which fell on, March 25th, that year, the Feast of the Annunciation!!!
Also, many of Fra Angelico's pieces were part of my main conversion and he is the patron saint of Artist.
So, thank you, Mother Mary... Queen of Heaven & Earth, continue to lead me to your son, Jesus and Fra Angelico, pray for us artist that through our art we may direct others to God like you.
