Our lady of Shagoura

The son of Mary

The son of Mary

The beautiful Hind
Trotting the path to the waters

Follow her

A shrine
Not far from Damascus

Shining

One of the oldest churches in the world
That remained faithful

Our Lady of Shagoura
(Saydnaya) in Syria

A women respected
By both christians and muslims

Ilustrious, Celebrated, and Renowned

Her icon, One of the four
painted by Luk

The Theotokos

God-bearer, Birth-Giver of God
the one who gives birth to God

In the old Syriac tradition

For muslims
A place of pilgrimage

The mother of Jesus

For roman Catholics
And Anglicans

Mother of God

A place of old
Where East ans West meet

In humble service to the One
