Artists for hundreds, even thousands, of years
have attempted to capture the essence of Mary.
This portrayal seeks to picture Mary
as Queen of the Heavens, with rich brocades and lace
and a crown too heavy to be worn by a human being.
I suspect that Mary would be embarrassed by images
that show her in extravagant clothing and jewels.
She was, after all, an unspoiled girl
who answered a call that would change her life
in ways she couldn't begin to imagine.
She said yes, trusting that her path would be revealed
and her feet would be steady upon it.
We should all be so obedient when the call to our destiny comes.
