Advent Calendar Day 19

When the angel Gabriel appeared to Mary and announced that she would bear a holy child, what did Mary look like? Countless artists have attempted to portray this mystery. This sketch is a copy of part of a famous painting by Henry Ossawa Tanner, 1898.

The Blessed Virgin Mary inspires us as she ponders the ways of God and responds, “Let it be to me according to your word.”
