Glad Tidings Angel
artists: Teri Steiger and Kristina Klein-Gaughran
Two things are special about this ornament:
First, this angel immediately brings to mind St. Terese's (aka the Little Flower) promise to "let fall a shower of roses" to all who ask her intercession in Heaven. As is so often emphasized when it comes to receiving help and graces, one first has to ask. I bet this is just what St. Terese looks like as she keeps her promise.
Secondly, the manner in which the angel is distributing the love hearts is the way God acts - slowly, individually, through time. Nothing happens with the wave of a magical wand.
