Mother of Mercy

Go to this Mother of Mercy, and show her the wounds which thy sins have left on thy soul; then will she certainly entreat her Son, by the breast that gave him suck, to pardon thee all. And this divine Son, who loves her so tenderly, will most certainly grant her petition.

- St Bernard of Clairvaux

An Ethiopian icon of Mary, based on the image of the Salus Populi Romani venerated in the basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome.
The image became the standard depiction of Mary in Ethiopia when the Jesuits brought copies of the Roman image to the African country. Soon it came to replace all traditional Ethiopian depictions of Mary, some of which had existed for many centuries. The Jesuits were expelled from the country in 1633. The icon they brought however continues to reproduced by the Ethiopian Church to this day, with copies in almost every church and Christian home.
