The image itself is quite unique among representations of Our Lady, most especially in that she is accompanied by the two famous mendicant Saints, St. Dominic on the left, and St. Francis on the right. In her right hand, she’s holding a holy rosary above St. Dominic, who also has a rosary attached to his religious habit. St. Dominic is the one attributed with popularizing the devotion of the holy rosary. The Child Jesus in the Blessed Mother’s arms is holding out a rope with three knots to St. Francis, who has the same knotted rope around his waist as a belt. The knotted rope is worn by all Franciscans, and the three knots represent the vows that these religious Brothers and Sisters make: poverty, chastity, and obedience.

The garments themselves are typical of imagery of the Blessed Mother. She’s wearing a blue mantle decked with stars; blue represents Heaven in iconography, and the stars are reminiscent of the “woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars” (Revelation 12:1). Her red dress is covered in rich patterning: the red represents earth, and those of us in this “valley of tears” who cry out for her intercession on our behalf, and the rich decorations represent the veneration we give to the Saints in honor of their great example of holiness.

Artist of the Coloring Page:

Carrie Chuff is a wife and homeschooling mother of six children. As a young woman, she spent five years of formation in a Roman Catholic convent of active/contemplative religious Sisters whose apostolate included retreats and catechesis. After realizing God had other plans, she left and later met and married her husband, Derek. Eventually, they both rediscovered their Eastern Catholic heritage and embraced it fully as members of the Ukrainian Greek-Catholic Church, a Byzantine Rite Eastern Catholic Church which is in full Communion with Rome. She resides with her family in Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania.

You can find Carrie’s charming videos about her time in the convent and more on her TikTok page and you can follow her Instagram here.
