The Trutzhain Madonna. As a ‘Mater gravida’ she is the ‘pregnant Madonna’ with the infant Jesus under her heart.
“Our ailing sight, since the fall, was not able to look upon God to read in Him our duty; the Son of God, in making Himself a little child, has given us a salve wherewith to anoint our eyes and so enable them to see the divine majesty in the humility of our flesh, in order that we might conform our life to His.”
