John Everett Millais, Christ in the House of His Parents

“Scripture describes Wisdom as gloriously beautiful. (Wisdom 7:22) In her teaching role Lady Wisdom builds herself a house and invites the unwise or simple to her rich feast (Prv 9: 1-6) In a reading assigned to 17 December, Pope Leo the Great (Epistola 31.2-3) not only writes of the ‘Word become Flesh” in Mary’s womb but also draws on Proverbs to picture the Unborn Jesus as ‘Wisdom building a house for itself.'”
