Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary

I love the image of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  A heart, uniquely feminine, surrounded by a garland of flowers, radiating God's love.  That is what mothers do for us.  That is what Mary does for us.  She who was ever attuned and ever obedient to God's will for her.

If we feel a lack in comparison, this is only natural.  We have our Mother in heaven who continually prays for us before the throne of God.  Let us ask her to remain with us on our journey and welcome us in heaven.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
