Rachel Weeping for Her Children
Fredrikson & Byron, P.A., Old National Bank
Rachel Weeping for Her Children represents the eternal bond between mother and child that survives even loss and pain. Whether Rachel is the woman whose nest is empty, the woman who has lost a child, the woman who is childless or the woman who witnesses her child’s pain, she is completely surrendered to her role as giver of the most lofty and enduring of all loves. Although Rachel expresses suffering, she also expresses healing and hope.
