SHORT HISTORY OF "MADONNA AND CHILD" SACRED IMAGE.
The Virgin Mary is the "MOTHER OF GOD" (THEOTOKOS). Nothing captures the intimate relationship of a mother and child as does this image. Christ obtained his humanity through Mary's acceptance of will of God. Christ was as man in all things but sin. We cherish the Virgin Mary as the Mother of God
so do we cherish our own Mothers.
Mary is called "Madonna" from the Italian "ma donna" or My Lady.
