Icon Mary................November 27

"Mother dear,
lend me your heart,
I look for it every day
to pour my troubles into.

St. Gemma Galgani

Wonderful image today Micki, what a Mother indeed to be able to love all of us and help us through the Power of Her Son.
Such a mystery that even though she is human because of her faith and love she so perfectly did Gods will, we are all saved if we trust and love Her Son our Saviour!

Beautiful. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us and at the hour of our death.

The distinctive style of this card is called "Beuronese" and was praised by Pope Pius XII as a suitable modern style for ecclesiastical art, along with traditional Romanesque, Gothic, and Baroque.
