Peaceful Print


Although Mary had plenty to fear at the moment depicted in this painting—Joseph hadn’t said he’d marry her yet, and she could have been stoned—the reaction recorded in this moment is one of joy and rejoicing. She focused on the knowledge that she was the most blessed among women rather than her fears. This painting is an invitation to choose, as Mary did, to focus on the joy of being part of Christ’s work, rather than social fears.
