Bradi Barth: The Visitation

Advent is a good time to meditate on The Visitation. It was Mother Teresa's favorite mystery of the rosary because, she said, Mary was the first missionary of charity hurrying to see her elderly cousin as soon as she learned she was pregnant. And one of my very favorite depictions of The Visitation is Bradi Barth's. Most artists show the meeting of Mary and Elizabeth, but few show the two unborn children greeting each other. But Bradi Barth gives us a window into the womb.

And here's a little bit about Bradi Barth herself. Praise God for the talents he showers on people. Each of us has gifts to share. And what a lovely one He endowed on Bradi Barth. Thank you, Jesus!
