Mater Divinae Gratiae
Mother of Divine Grace

Mary whose half image is placed on top of a three-tiered fountain  is identified as the one who "contains all grace" ("In me gratia omnis," Sirach 24).  This is confirmed by the Annunciation angel, "Gratia plena" (full of grace), and by the three rays of light emanating from the triangular symbol of the Trinity.  In turn, the rays are transformed into three well- springs springing from Mary's heart, symbol of Trinitarian grace, and the three theological virtues of faith, hope and charity.  Thus, Mary is a fountain of life.

"Let us proceed to and approach the throne of grace"
 
(Hebrews 4).
