OK, I have a question for you.

We just had an icon, Mary Star of Evangelization visit our parish -- you can see it on the Portland Archdiocese website -- and some of us were comparing the composition of it with the composition of the paintings of Our Lady of Guadalupe as transferred onto the cloak of Juan Diego.

Question -- Why are the wings of the angel under the Blessed Virgin Mary RED, WHITE and BLUE?

Would those colors have actually been on the cloak, or are they added by a later artist?
