Mary

I converted to Catholicism twenty years ago and over the years have developed a special affinity for Mary. Coming from a Protestant background, it's difficult to describe how or why I would pray to Mary, but I can only tell you that it just feels right.

So, during our four days in Buenos Aires, I was thrilled to find many opportunities to photograph beautiful statuary of Mary....



I found this statue at an outdoor market. It's called Mary of the Road, in honor of travellers. It's fairly representative of a typical Marian statue, with the blue robe, the crown, and hands held in prayer.



This statue of Mary's sacred heart is absolutely amazing in its beauty....when I walked into the antiques shop and saw this, I was thrilled when I was allowed to take pictures so that I would have a record, since they were not for sale.
Here is another statue of Mary's sacred heart from the antique shop....


This is the incredible close up of Mary's beautiful passion.....
Here's another Mary....Mary Magdelene...statuary such as this is featured in many antique shops


This is a close up on the incredible face of Mary Magdalene....stunningly beautiful....

This image of Mary and the baby Jesus is ultimately the most comforting, and perhaps best captures her love
