Day 4: Redemption
Many of my friends have posted this image on Facebook. This strikingly profound art is the work of a sister from Our Lady of Mississippi Abbey. It depicts the origin in the fall of humanity brought forth through Eve and the redemption of Christ brought forth through Mary. What a wonderful visual of the redemption story.
And I will cause hostility between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring. He will strike your head, and you will strike his heel.” – Genesis 3:15
“For he took notice of his lowly servant girl, and from now on all generations will call me blessed….for he made this promise to our ancestors, to Abraham and his children forever.” – Luke 1:48; 55
