"A Virgin A Day": Day 3



Somewhere in Old Town, Albuquerque, there is an old cottonwood tree that someone has painted what they saw as the form of the Virgin Mary.

THE FLOWERS OF MARY

The mystic rose, symbolizes Mary's mystical participation in the Holy Trinity as Heaven's Rose or Mystical Rose.





An annual tradition for a group of us (hosted by the amazing Rebecca Brooks) is to post something about our Blessed Mother for 12 days-starting with December 1st and concluding on the Feast Day of Our Lady Of Guadalupe on Dec. 12th. I will admit, that for all of us, our lives are busy lives; particularly as we head into the Holiday Season. This kind of commitment is not as easy to do as one would think! However, it is not an exclusive group. You may join in just for one day, partial, or all!

And, by all means, please be sure to stop by and visit a few others who are on this 12 day journey.

How beautifully you've invited everyone to join us in the days ahead as we share Twelve Days of Mary. I love this Albuquerque artist's whimsy and needed the reminder about the mystical rose.

Dear Paula, I was in Albuquerque at the end of September! I would have loved to have seen this image in person, but I'm grateful to have you share it here! I so love the symbolism of the mystic rose. Your pics and commentary are wonderful.

My days are your nights (I am in South Africa) so I sometimes only see posts much later - I missed this one - what a wonderful image - in India they paint the face of Shiva in the roots of trees that protrude from the ground
