MOTHER OF THE UNBORN [PREBORN]
" Miss Lee Tidwell, an American artist, was inspired to paint this beautiful depiction of Our Blessed Mother grieving over the millions of aborted babies. Normally, a picture like this would take her months to finish. She completed this in two hours.
The stars round Mary's head represent the crown of the Woman of the Apocalypse (12.1): 'A woman adorned with the sun, standing on the moon, and with the twelve stars on her head for a crown'. The large star is the 'Star of Bethlehem'. The colored ball in the lower left corner is the earth in turmoil. The glow of her most Immaculate Heart is an evident sign of her tremendous love for all her children, especially the most helpless of all.
The incessant weeping over this horrendous evil has blackened her lovely eyes. The baby's Guardian Angel seems to be both saddened over the death of his charge and grateful for the Blessed Mother's care and concern.
The baby bears the five wounds of Our Precious Saviour. Note, both baby and Angel are weeping and the baby's hands are clasped in prayer.
The reason the Blessed Mother's hand and fingernails are dirty is because she has to scoop and dig out these precious souls from the trash bins, garbage dumps, and as in Wichita, Kansas, from a pile ready to be burned with dead animals at their dog pound."
Mary, Mother of the Preborn
O Father in Heaven, Thou art the Creator of Life. Protect all expectant mothers and the babies they carry in their wombs. We pray that those who suffer from the evils of abortion will be open to Thine Infinite Mercy and Love. We ask for the conversion of all who fail to RESPECT THE GIFT OF HUMAN LIFE. Heavenly Father, guide our actions to help restore in the hearts of all people the SANCTITY OF HUMAN LIFE........AMEN
