Fabulous Temple, Chris!
Interesting that you are encountering Kannon, Mother of Mercy, while
I am researching the virgin mary, also a Mother of Mercy.
Padre Pio used to tell this joke: Jesus and St Peter are walking in
the streets of heaven. They see some tough guys loitering about and
Jesus asks, these unsavory characters shouldn't be here, should
they? How did they get in? Hey don't blame me, St Peter replies,
every time my back is turned your mother opens the gates wide and
lets everyone in.
