thanksgiving (dark version)

My Lap

Day 24: Tonight Christ is born. Mary, who carried him in her womb, will hold him on her lap. The card for day alludes to this image.

“(18) May you cling to his most sweet Mother, who gave birth to the kind of Son whom the heavens could not contain, (19) and yet, she carried him in the tiny enclosure of her sacred womb, and held him on her young girl's lap.”

How do I hold Christ on my lap? 


I hold Christ as cornucopia on my lap, from which plenty of riches and generosity is flowing. The card that came to the table is the Queen of Pentacles from the Tarot of Prague.
