I happened upon this in Sant’ Elena.
The inscription under the Madonna and Child translates to something like:
In labor, rest – in the cold, comfort and warmth – in any weather, safety

Oh, I do like this. As well as the way the wiring went around.

Sant’ Elena is quite different, compared to Venice proper. It’s relatively new, with lots of space, trees, parks for the kids to gallop in.
What a wonderful and peaceful message. Sometimes we need to remember it and feel peace.
It does leave me with the unanswered question of the purpose of that particular building. I don’t know if I’ll have time to try to find out.
Thank you, Margot. ❤
That’s a lovely, reassuring inscription….does it also apply to the cable company wiring there?

You bet it does, Cynthia! In fact, you bet your life.
(I like the way wiring is detoured around shrines, etc.)
You cynics are all the same! You should be saying: Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa. Although I did have a good laugh at the wiring comment!
It’s Latin – not Italian!!
Oh, that Mea!
How odd to see Al Gore’s name up there!☺
Thanks for the translation. I have a photo of the same from 2013. I don’t think I even noticed the inscription.
He does! It’s like He’s saying “Look at Me, I’m very cute.”
The little baby Jesus has got quite a cheeky little look on His face.
