I found this picture looking for a picture of St. Cleophas. It is entitled St. Catherine the Madonna and Child and St. John the Baptist. To me it exemplifies 'baby worship" and not just any worship but worship of "the Baby, Our Lord". I first encountered the term "baby worship" in an L.M. Montgomery book- Anne of Green Gables, in whatever book Anne begain to raise her family.
It is moving to see St. Catherine, the illiterate Docotor of the Church worshiping Our Lord and embracing Him the way we all would like to.
