My Soul Doth Magnify the Lord

Today we honour Mary, the mother of Jesus as part of our Advent preparation for Christmas.  In the Lady Chapel of the Cathedral of the Isles in Millport, there is a wonderful Altar Frontal with three Art Nouveau panels proclaiming “My Soul Doth Magnify the Lord“.

Behind the Altar is a Triptych by Donald Swan depicting, in the centre panel, a very real and very human Mary discretely feeding the Baby Jesus:

He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away.
