I meant to post these photographs yesterday in celebration of the Visit of Mary to Elizabeth.
The sculpture is from the Church of the Visitation at Ein Karem. The courtyard wall is covered with the words of The Magnificat (Luke 1:46-56) in 42 different languages.
The pictures were taken during my sabbatical in 2008.
Doug Chaplin has posted an interesting comment about Joseph in Luke’s infancy narrative.
