Keeper of the Door

Virgin of the Household
Virgin guarding a doorway, Morelia, Michoacán, México
For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.
Psalm 84:10, King James Version

Keeper of the door,
never sleeping day or night,
bless all those within.
