For Catholics, particularly those with a devotion to the Blessed Mother, this workweek has "Mary" bookends:

On Monday, over at Busted Halo, this image of the Madonna and Child created in 2004 by my old college buddy Anthony Santella, was used to illustrate the solemnity on the site's Advent Calendar:
