I’ve been working on tonight’s Rosary Project thread and while the files are backing up I thought I’d drop in here and post one of my favorite images. This one is by Lorenzo Lotto: Madonna of the Rosary.
Poor Blessed Virgin Mary, in these scenes she can never keep Baby Jesus in her lap. He’s always trying to get down or grab someone’s beard. Seriously. Look at those Adoration of the Magi paintings sometime. He’s always trying to see what’s in the boxes or pull their hair or something. Cracks me up every time. What a handful He must have been!
What is the Rosary Project, you ask? It’s me praying the Rosary and posting it as I pray it on Twitter (or on the mobile site, I prefer it’s clean uncluttered look). As my dear friendd Rose says, I’m “live tweeting” the Rosary. Or I have been, every night since June or July of 2018. The nightly live Twitter Rosary is coming to an end this weekend, April 20, Holy Saturday, and a new phase of the project will be beginning here at Catholic Heart & Mind. If you want to join in this final week of the live Rosary, log on to Twitter at 8:30 pm Central and bring your beads. Hope to see you there!
