We’ve looked at many versions of Notre-Dame du Perpetual-Secours but this one caught our eye. One of the things we liked about it is the sweet smile of Mary. She’s helping out of compassion and love. And we loved the cheerful colors. Our Mother seems very warm and inviting to us, as well as to her Son. She’s always there to help. That’s why they say her help is “perpetual.” It never ends.
This early 20th Century French holy card litho is clearly modeled after the icon attributed to St. Luke in St. Mary Major Basilica. People say that the reason one of his shoes is falling off is that because he saw the instruments of the Passion and was running to his mother. She brought him comfort and help, the way she will bring you comfort and help if you ask.
Standard size. Easy to find a ready-made frame at your local Hobby Lobby. We recommend a wooden frame for this one, of course, either stained or one of the colors in the painting that match your walls. If you're sending this as a gift and would like us to frame it for you, please convo and we'll make special arrangements for you.
