Happy Feast of the Mother of God.
And Happy New Year.
Pictured, an icon of Our Lady of the Sign by a Terrance Nelson, painted for a priest in St. Paul, Minnesota.
"Narrative: Depicting the Virgin of Mt. Sinai, Our Lady of the Sign expresses the ancient anthem, “In the bush seen by Moses, as burning yet unconsumed, we recognize the preservation of your glorious virginity, O Mother of God!” as well as the prophecy of Isaiah, “... the Lord himself shall give you a sign; behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son.” (Isaiah 7:14)"
(It was the first icon I came across when I put in "Our Lady of the Sign" on Google.)
As usual, The Penitent Blogger has a concise explanation of the meaning of today's feast, in his post, "Something About Mary".
