Sunday Evening Luthien

This is an artist’s rendering of Tolkien’s Luthien, but I am captivated by the picture to the point where, it seems intuitively to me, it might best represent any or all of the Marys of the Gospels.

And it likewise seems fitting here for me to post –

Salve, Regina, mater misericordiae;
vita, dulcedo et spes nostra, salve.
Ad te clamamus exsules filii Hevae.
Ad te suspiramus gementes et flentes
in hac lacrimarum valle. 
Eia ergo, advocata nostra, 
illos tuos misericordes oculos ad nos converte. 
Et Iesum, benedictum fructum ventris tui, 
nobis post hoc exsilium ostende. 
O clemens, o pia, o dulcis Virgo Maria.

As a fitting end to a fine weekend.
