Our Lady of the Sign
(Icon-002)

Therefore the Lord Himself shall give you a sign: behold, the virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. Isaiah 7: 14

Mary is revered in the Church because she is mother, but even more because she is the model Christian; she bears Christ to the world. We are called as Christians to bring Christ into our everyday lives and relationships.
