Jeff Ziegler suggests Botticelli’s Madonna of the Magnificat for our contemplation as we approach Christmas. Here’s just one beautiful detail: the Christ Child’s hand on top of His mother’s hand, as she writes the Magnificat.

Jeff points us to the Web Gallery of Art, which has the full image, as well as some notes on the painting.
