SUNDAY POST : Wonderful

This wonderful mother never fails to capture my heart…
The Pieta

The Pieta, the wonderful Renaissance masterpiece by Michelangelo, and commissioned for the French cardinal, Jean de Billheres. It is the only known art piece signed by the artist and carved from Carrara marble.

Mother Teresa, another wonderful mother that never fails to inspire great works from us…

“What I do you cannot do; but what you do, I cannot do.

The needs are great, and none of us, including me, ever do great things.

But we can all do small things, with great love, and together we can do something WONDERFUL.”

    Really beautiful, especially the Pieta–and the words are so lovely and meaningful too, the message that all of our small efforts together, add up to Wonderful. I like that! God bless you, Sunshine–love, sis Caddo

      Whenever I come across the Pieta, it never fails to make me stop right where I am…and Philosopher Mouse commented appropriately:
      “Amazing how cold rock can produce such warmth…”
