When you see the “A” & “M” intertwined you may think: Ave Maria, latin for Hail Mary, the words of honor the angel Gabriel used to first address the Virgin at the Annunciation.

In many Marian images, Mary is seen stomping on the head of the serpent, representing Satan. Give these socks as a gift and reminder to call upon Mary to protect your friends and family from the attacks of the evil one and to draw them closer to her Son!
