*Hummel, Mission Mary........January 30

"Place yourself in Mary's hands;
she will think of everything and provide for the needs
of soul and body.
Therefore, be at peace,
be at complete peace,
with unlimited confidence in her!"

St. Maximilian Kolbe

I am guessing (from the absence of a halo) that the nun on the right represents a missionary sister of our times. On the left is St. Therese of Lisieux (note the roses/"little flowers"), who is co-patron saint of the Missions.

Thank you, Micki, for another great card.

John - I love the idea that St. Therese of Lisieux wanted to be a missionary but couldln't because of her health. So, she "adopted" a missionary to pray for and give us the example that we can do that also. Wonderful!
