The Virgin Mary with Pomegranate

Virgin Mary with Pomegranate 15c by Fra Angelico

O Queen of heaven, be joyful, alleluia!
For he to whom you once gave birth, alleluia!
Is now risen, as he foretold, alleluia!
Pray for us to the Father, alleluia!


  1. Beautiful!

  2. You never fail to deliver. I opened the post to find this beautiful image and lovely prayer. It is just what I needed to start this difficult day. I was feeling down and this lifted me up. Amen.

  3. O Virgin Mary, Mother of the sweet Jesus child in this painting, please pray for us as we are weak and sinful and in need of God's mercy. Amen.

  4. Today's my moms birthday, the 26th. It's always a bit melancholy this time of year. The pomegranate caught my attention as I drank this juice for a type of healing tjis past weekend. God is so good.
