Immaculate Heart of Mary..........June 20



FEAST OF THE IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY


"By his own will Christ was dependent on Mary during Advent: he was absolutely helpless; he could go nowhere but where she chose to take him; he could not speak; her breathing was his breath; his heart beat in the beating of her heart.

Caryll Houselander from The Reed of God

Thankyou, Micki, for the treasure of a holy card and also that beautiful quote from one of my favorites-Caryll Houselander.

What a fabulous, fabulous quote -- as a mom, it really moves me.

The IHM is something I was exposed to as a child (my school was staffed by the Sisters, Servants of the IHM), but it's only since becoming a mom that this image has really resonated with me.

P.S. Micki, thanks so much for the email -- glad you enjoyed the article!

Hi
Thank for your job, is great. I'm always visit this page, but now I can't save the images...Why?

(I saved and used in my chapel each month...I love the german stamp, specially)

Sorry my english, I'm in Conceción - Chile.

God blessed to you.
