MWM: Unthinkable

Mornings With Mary

Base Photo Source

The base photo for this art is from HBO's info page for the original movie Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God, a documentary of priest abuse dating back to the 50s. I added effects to the photo using the Polyvore website, where I create all my art.

victims of power
mary mourns the hurt children
wraps them in her love
