Growing up in a family with Irish Catholic roots, Catholic spirituality was a part of the fabric of my life. The Ave Maria prayer is one that I know by heart and the ritual of the rosary has been an important comfort to me. I have always been particularly drawn to the figure of Mary, for both her importance in the life of Christ and for her mysteriousness. Mary is often present but we don't always get to know what she is thinking or feeling directly through Biblical texts. In this setting, I wanted to express the comfort and reassurance that the figure of Mary in particular and mothers in general offer and also give voice to the struggles humans feel that often lead them to think of Mary.
