Letter of the week: I
Theme: Immaculate Conception
Saint of the Week: St. Ignatius
Craft: Immaculate Conception Coloring Page
Symbolism in this picture includes Mary in the womb of St. Anne (wearing her signature veil). St. Anne and Mary both have their backs turned towards the apple tree to visually state that Mary was conceived without original sin. There are 3 beams of light coming down from the sun that stand for the trinity. Also, the snake (Satan) is unhappy about what has happened here.
