Cover. An anonymous Chinese artist painted this watercolor of one of the most beloved representations of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the “Mother of Perpetual Help”. This rendering does not quite have all the elements of the Byzantine original, but Catholics who know their faith well will immediately recognize both Mary and the Holy Child Jesus, the Archangels Michael and Gabriel, and the sorrow of the Crucifixion (in the painting as effectively implied as in the original in Rome) that makes up half of the message of Christmas.
