The symbols of Christianity date back from the time of the early Christians and continue to evolve up through the Middle Ages and into modern times. This sweater is meant to pay tribute to Jesus Christ, His Mother and His symbols. It’s like a scavenger hunt – see how much symbolism you can find!

“My spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior, for he has regarded the humility of his handmaid; for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. Because he that is mighty, has done great things to me; and holy is his name.”

-Luke 1: 47-49
