Mother Mary is the mother of Jesus Christ.
Both the hands held
in Varada Hasta pointing downwards. The left hand in front of the womb
"For us men and for our salvation, Son of God
came down from heaven by the power of the Holy Spirit, he was born of the
Virgin Mary and became Man" (Apostle's Creed).
The right hand is held
ever lower and out stretched symbolising one who gives and always helps.
Mary is the mother of Jesus Christ who gives herself to God and to his
redemptive act 9Lk 1:39-56 of Magnificat).
Mary, in one of her
apparitions in Fatima, appeared in this posture.
