In labore …

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

  4. That’s a lovely, reassuring inscription….does it also apply to the cable company wiring there?

    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.
