The new header

Did you notice the new header? It will stay up for the month of September, since it is a scene of the birth of the Virgin Mary. This fresco was painted in 1486 by Domenico Ghirlandaio. Notice the angels dancing in the upper windows, delighting in the birth of Mary. Below them, the Latin inscription reads: Thy birth, O Virgin and Mother of God, brings joy to all the world.

Indeed.

Very nice! I hope I can get my main computer online soon, it has all my links to Catholic art on it.
