... one of Michelangelo’s Pietas, which is powerful. It depicts a youthful Mother Mary - majestic and regal - as she cradles her lifeless son. She is sorrowful and in disbelief and with her hand’s gesture, she says, “Look at my son. They have killed him.” Her gesture also says, “Here he is. He has done it, that which he was meant to do.” And, with her demeanor, she glorifies him. I never studied art formally, so I may sound naive, but Michelangelo’s work spoke to me (Young Ezekiel, 98).
