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.
