The piece this notecard was based on is the lovely painting 'Our Lady of the Lilies' by Bouguereau. His painting is a favorite of Martina Kreitzer, foundress of the blog Catholic Sistas (www.catholicsistas.com). Martina has a special affinity for the Miraculous Medal and St Catherine Laboure (the Sister who received the visions from which the medals were designed). Incorporated are both a quote by St Catherine and the text of the Miraculous Medal prayer ("O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee") along with contemporary style elements.
St. Catherine Laboure was a simple woman who remained anonymous throughout her life, despite the growing renown of the Medals. Simple prayers are what moms often turn to out of necessity, and this quote by St Catherine seemed perfect: "God always speaks to you when you approach Him plainly and simply." And...can you find another symbol within the painting that refers to the Miraculous Medal?
