"Blessed John Henry Newman" by Sir John Everett Millais

“Blessed John Henry Newman” by Sir John Everett Millais

“The Virgin and Child is not a mere modern idea; on the contrary, it is represented again and again, as every visitor to Rome is aware, in the paintings of the Catacombs. Mary is there drawn with the Divine Infant in her lap, she with hands extended in prayer, He with His hand in the attitude of blessing.” (Blessed John Henry Newman)
