For the past five years, a poster of Sandro Botticelli’s “Birth of Venus” on my office wall has intrigued me. I stare at the Venus on the Half-Shell and sense that she wants to tell me something. But what? Does she have a secret? Some ancient wisdom to soothe my 21st-century, working-mother soul? I imagine what the goddess of love might say if we met at the corner coffee shop. Pulling myself back to reality, I add viewing the Renaissance painting to my bucket list.
One day while walking in downtown D.C., I spot something shiny on the ground. Never one to overlook a free dime or single earring, I stoop to pick it up. It’s a small silver charm with a figure I can’t make out on one side and, on the other, a large M with “Italy” stamped beneath it. A Google search reveals that I’ve found a Miraculous Medal. Since 1832, Catholics have been wearing them, believing in Mary’s promise that all who do “will receive great graces.”
It’s a sign. I’m going to Italy.
