Mary, Mother of God

I busied myself working on this image for the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God. 

Initially, I wanted to pepper the image with selected Marian titles from the Litany of Loreto. But then, I decided against it since it would NOT just clutter the immaculate photograph of the Blessed Mother, but it will also make the concept altogether complicated. 

Hence, I settled with the one-liner "Nanay" ("Mom" in English) to make the theological concept rather appealing to human (and Filipino!) emotions, for all of us have got a link with a mother. 

And as we welcome the brand new year with a bang, let us also pause for a moment and remember the Mother who gave us her Son.
