Mater Intemerata
Mother Undefiled

The symbol chosen here is that of the mother whose Son uses the lance of his cross to combat wild beasts representing evil.  She is holding the Christ child on her lap, but it is in fact He who had chosen her from the beginning ("Possedit me in initio" Proverbs 8:22).

"Thus, we know that all the powers of hell are no match for her."
