Prayer tables for April

Introduce this month’s theme with your prayer table art.  We’re studying the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist and will be spending time in some guided Eucharistic adoration.  To introduce that purpose, this piece by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres would be an ideal addition to your prayer table.  (Click the image for a higher resolution version.)

Imagine what Mary must be thinking as she looks with love upon her Son here.

She has always known Him better than anyone else; as a baby, growing up, through His public ministry, as He was being crucified, and now, in the glories of heaven and truly present in every tabernacle in every Catholic church in the world.
