My Kitchen Madonna

Matilda is looking for pictures of Kitchen Madonnas or other images that help us “find a little Heaven amidst the saucepans and broomsticks.”

Here’s my kitchen counter just to the right of the sink. My KM is on the window sill.

It’s a dark picture, especially small. If you click on it, it looks better.

Here’s a closer look at my dinged (from multiple moves) and (eek) dirty KM. I just love the image of the Child Jesus asking his mother for some bread.

And I tell you, ask and you will receive; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. What father among you would hand his son a snake when he asks for a fish? Or hand him a scorpion when he asks for an egg? If you then, who are wicked, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him? (Luke 11:9-13)

If you have a Kitchen Madonna to post, let Matilda know. And me too!

  1. Thank you! I love the colors and I see no dirt!

  2. That’s really pretty! You sure wasted no time in turning your new home into a “home.” May your family be blessed with happiness and health during your time there.

  3. That is very sweet! Thank you!

  4. Where did you get your Kitchen Madonna…I just love it. I’ve searched the internet for it, but not having any luck…

  5. Waht a wonder Madonna! I’m with Missy, I’d love to have one or two especially as gifts to families moving into a new home.

  6. Missy and Ann, there’s a beautiful one on eBay right now. Go look at auction # 220138958224.I had the same immediate reaction, but then I pictured how it would look in my kitchen – the decor is very much dictated by the tile backsplash the previous owner put in – and didn’t think it would really ‘work’. So I got myself a nice plaque with a prayer instead. 🙂
