Virgin and Child

"Saturdays stand out among those days dedicated to the Virgin Mary. These are designated as memorials of the Blessed Virgin Mary. This memorial derives from Carolingian times (ninth century), but the reasons for having chosen Saturday for its observance are unknown" - from the Directory of Popular Piety. Stained glass detail from a window in St Lawrence's church in Chicheley.
