    The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant compared to the power of the Force.

    It's likely

    A. Mary (no other woman that I can think of in Catholic lore gets this type of art)
    B. Glancing at the mini-pics, one of her catalogued appearances with marching orders

    I don't follow Catholic lore closely enough to figure that one out specifically but there are some rather famous events over the centuries where Mary reportedly appears to someone (generally isolated souls outdoors) with some kind of message from on high.


    Edit:

    If I were a betting sort then I'd go with

Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    Catholic art has been known to use that type of picture to tell stories or at least remind people familiar with the stories of key plot points. I know a Church that pulls the trick with stained glass windows.

    There is what is called the "Cult" of Mary...might need to search on this one.
    From National Geographic.

    - - - Updated - - -

    It has from time to time been Said that the Madonna is an image that kind of mimics the pagan goddess in order to bring in those pagans that resisted leaving their beliefs..This is mostly speculation,as no evidence has been brought forward in this matter. Some use the Voodoo inclusion of saints from the Mother church that were influenced by the expansion of said Church to explain that view of bringing in outside beliefs and imagery to bring in what they(the church) term pagans or heathens(their terms,not mine)
    MAGIC is MAGIC,black OR white or even blood RED

    all i ever wanted was a normal life and love.
    NO TERF EVER WE belong Too.
    don't stop the tears.let them flood your soul.
