The Infant Jesus Is On Her Lap ...... center of Attention for us ...I don't have or want icons of Mary by Herself....
Greetings in that Divine and Most Precious Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
Don't be so snug as to snub the Holy Mother of God! For what Man, does not honor and venerate his own earthly mother? And if Jesus Christ is indeed, fully God and fully Man, then surely our Lord and Savior in all things, in all ages, honors His Holy Mother in all the He is. This is the economy of God, that through our own human endeavours, God meets us half the way, and carries us forward. We live in a world of 4 dimensions, of time and space interacting, we have free will to move in any corpeal direction we chose, and yet we are ALWAYS both sustained and limited by the realities of the laws of reality such as Gravity. Such is our Free Will economy with God, who is the Source and Being of all things, and so we have only the freedom to move within the parameters of God, but what a glorious freedom it is!
And that being said, the miracle of the Incarnation is Divine enough to sustain all things, and so just as God has deigned Himself to take on the flesh, that the Limitless would become Limited, the Eternal would take on a specific time and place, so also He has allowed for the Holy Mother to operate within the parameters of human Free Will. Just as a mother pushes her babe in the stroller, trodding in the hot sun across the park by the strength and grace of her own human endurance, so to does the Savior allow Himself to be moved by humans, through the Grace given to His Holy Mother. The economy of God is to cooperate fully within the Free Will of Human decisions, and His Holy Mother is very much a part of this, for it is written to Honor thy Mother and Father with promise.
While Mary was only His Regent while He was a Babe, She carried Him where She willed until He carried Himself (Luke 2:49), nonetheless what man as he grows older cares less
for his mother? Do we human men on the earth not grow more
fond, more reverent, more respectful of our earthly mothers as we grow into successful men, and as we embrace our own authority, do we not all the more so yield
it to the love and honor of our Mothers at any and every cost? So to, even as the Savior is enthroned at the Right Hand of the Father, out of pure love, He will always respect and revere and honor the will and decisions and opinions and thoughts and requests of His and Our Holy Mother.
There is neither Mariology nor Marianology , simply the Love of God which operates through us all, and especially Our Mother.
