The lovely portrayal of Our Lady known as the Kitchen Madonna is a way to bring both peace and grace to a busy routine.
Wives and mothers give of themselves every day as they care for their families, cook, clean, encourage, support, and love. Our Lady, too, was a wife and mother, and as such she has a special and unique patronage for the women called to these roles.
The Kitchen Madonna shows Our Lady in her role as a housewife. In her hand she holds a simple broom, not merely signifying the cleanliness of rooms and floors, but also the spiritual cleanliness that Our Lady helps us to achieve and maintain.
Placing a Kitchen Madonna in your kitchen or another space in your home will remind you of Our Lady’s presence and assistance as you go about your daily tasks. This Madonna will also help you remember that every task, offered in a spirit of love and prayer, is a step along the path to holiness. Entrust your work to Our Lady and she will turn it into a continual channel of grace!
A beautifully-designed Kitchen Madonna is available right here at The Catholic Company. This sweet Italian statue shows Our Lady reflectively sweeping her home: a poignant image of docility and small things done with great love. It makes the perfect piece for a kitchen or dining area, and is sure to bring a smile to all who gaze on it! Order yours today!
