12 Days of Mary: Day 9

The statue may be very small, but the stature is not!
"Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, hail, our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve: to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Turn then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus, O merciful, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary! Amen."

About the 12 Days of Mary: Everyone is invited. While this is not about religion, it is about sharing, opening hearts, rejoicing in ultimate mother love.
It is about light, compassion, inspiration, and the sweet chance to begin each day together in beauty and peace.

Some will write amazing words of inspiration and prayer. Others tell a story. Often, the image alone conveys the message and that is enough.

Come see what others have shared over at Rebecca's page. Feel free to join in with us whether if it's for one day or all 12!

So pretty. Is she, perhaps, residing in a cemetary?

Thanks for pointing out to me yesterday that all the participants are not female and that Magical Mystery Teacher is male. How did I miss that? Anyhow, love your virgin Mary--to me she looks 10 feet tall.

Sometimes the most seemingly insignificant things are in actuality the most powerful things.

Consider these words from First Corinthians, chapter 1:

For consider your call, brethren; not many of you were wise according to worldly standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth;

[27] but God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise, God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong,
[28] God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are,
[29] so that no human being might boast in the presence of God.
