|Sancta Maria Bambina|
Virgin Mary is not only revered by those following the Catholic
and Orthodox religions. She has many devotees who, in many ways,
are the keepers of her stories and legends.
Even in the Catholic tradition, there are many lesser known
stories of her.
Earlier this year I visited the chapel and the House of the
Sisters of Charity in Milan. These Sisters are the keepers
of the effigy of the baby girl Mary, known
as Santa Maria Bambina.
'A hermit had on a certain night for many years, heard music in
the heavens. When he asked he cause, an angel answered:
the Virgin was born this night, and what is ignored
on earth, is celebrated in the heavens.' (from The Legends
of Mary, Thirteenth Century)
