THE TENDER MOTHER OF GOD


This beautiful icon of Mary with her child was written by Fr Jim Nolan, PP Davidstown. He also penned the following reflection on the icon. These are beautiful words that lead us into the mystery of the incarnation at Christmas - God becoming one like us in all things but sin to save us out of love.

BEARING THE BABE IN WONDER

UNFOLDING THE IDENTITY OF GOD

A SAVIOUR CHILD

RELEGATED TO A CRIB

SUJECTED TO THE MAJESTY

OF CREATION

A CHILD IS BORN

DELIVERING THESE MIRACULOUS

MOMENTS WHICH ELEVATE US

BEYOND OUR ODYSSEY

CLUTCHING THE HAND OF GOD

IN THE TENDER FINGERS

OF A CHILD

AFFORDING THE GRACE OF GIVING
