From John Herreid, here’s a painting I’ve never seen before:
Here is a detail, showing the Word of God proceeding from the mouth of the Father:
Cross already in hands. Oh, Mary.
And a short interview with my daughter, who is almost 5. I am not sure why the conversation started with a discussion of her rabbit Daffodil’s eating habits; and YES I fluffed at least two opportunities to clear up theological misunderstandings. But around 2:53, she says something that never occurred to me before, but I bet she’s right:
After the angel told her she would have a child, and He would be Son of the Most High, she said . . . “Thank you.”
