He is kneeling while the Blessed Virgin puts the Holy Child in his arms. the Infant Jesus keeps his arms open trough the Saint. One of the cherubs holds the Holy Writ opened on Matth. 33.3. 1. Verses where is written "Servate et Facite ". The scene was inspired by a real life event. Gaetano wrote a letter to his spiritual confidant, Sister Laura Mignani, telling her that while he was praying in the Nativity chapel in the Church of Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome, the Virgin appeared to him and puts Jesus in his outstretched arms. This vision, which occurred on Christmas Eve of 1517, spurred Gaetano to carrie on his Mission stronger than ever, He is also known as the Holy Providence’s Saint.
