Maria Lactans


Other mums have been posting about the amazing wealth of devotional art and prayer about Mary breastfeeding. But it still not widely known, so here is yet another mother blogging. The photo on the left is Our Lady of La Leche from a shrine in the US.

This article about Maria Lactans has lots more photos – no thumbnails to browse by, unforunately.

There is a collection of photos on Facebook under the name of Historical Photos & Prints of Breastfeeding

There is even a German Wikipedia article.

Of course there had to be a Flickr Virgo Lactans group.
