Mary the "Theotokos" ( Greek for"God Bearer" ) 

This icon was inspired by a conversation with Br. Angelo, a Franciscan Friar. 

Mary was not the God-Bearer once. She was the God-Bearer her whole life, even in old age. Br. Angelo believes her eyes must have told a story all on their own in her old age with everything she saw and experienced. It is a reminder that we all bear the image of God within us. Legend says that Mary died in the home of John at the age of 72.
