Last Day of the Month of May

Mama Mary's month has come to an end but I didn't want to leave the month of May without a final tribute.  This one is for all of us who have experienced the loss of a little one: whether that be a child to early death, miscarriage, abortion; whether that be a brother, sister, niece or nephew or grandchild; whether it is a part of you that was lost and longs to be found... Behold your mother who loves you and wraps you in her mantle. God 'so loved the world' that he not only gave us his only Son, he gave us his only mother.  And never before has this world so needed a mother.
(Thanks Monica J., for the gift of this picture, and your friendship)
Loving Mother of the Redeemer, gate of heaven, star of the sea, assist your people who have fallen yet strive to rise again. To the wonderment of nature you bore your Creator, yet remained a virgin after as before. You who received Gabriel's joyful greeting, have pity on us poor sinners.
(Alma Redemptoris Mater-Mother of the Redeemer)

  1. This is the picture that I sent to both of my daughters to remind them of OurLady's protection of their children. We need her today in our dangerously evil world situation.
