Without sin

December 8th is a public holiday where I live. It is The Immaculate Conception of Mary , the conception of the Virgin Mary without any stain (“macula” in Latin) of Original Sin. In our words today we would say, Mary was born without ego – a perfectly empty vessel to conceive and bear the Christ.

In this paining of M Caravaggio, St Domenicus receives a rosary from an apparition of the Madonna. He later founded the Order of the Black Friars.

About Michaela

I am a wanderer and a wonderer, like you are. I love our journey and to walk in the company of friends – to learn, experience, share, laugh, cry and above all I simply love this marvelous, magical, mysterious life. I have no plan (cannot believe I am saying this) and my only intention is to be truthful to myself and others.
