The beautiful patroness of Madrid:

In all churches here in Espana, we see God and His mother decked in most gorgeous robes and glistening crowns of gold, yet what truly makes them royal is their simplest feature—their flesh, the show of God’s oneness with us, and His complete love for us—that God Himself should want to be one amongst us, as if the King was begging the servant to accept Him.
