God's Best Creation..........February 12








"You, Mary, are God's best creation.
No one has ever loved God so
intimately as you,
O glorious Lady."



St. Bridget of Sweden



Here is the meaning of the French words on this card (which, I think, was received by a First Communicant) ...
"O Virgin without equal, most gentle of all creatures, grant that we may live in the
innocence of this day,
blessed by the first visit of the Lord."

Thanks John

This is such a beautiful card, and the text is equally beautiful. How fortunate that we are, that Jesus gave us such a Beautiful and Holy Mother. If only I had a teny tiny amount of the faith she had.

May each of us learn to imitate her example and say, "yes" to God in Everything as she so perfectly did!

Dear Mother Mary, please hold my hand tightly, never letting go until you have seen me home to Heaven! There may my heart join with yours and those of the Angels singing of the tender Mercies and Joys that come from you Son! Jesus and Mary, you are the Joy of the human heart! A Blessed Weekend to all! Keep Warm Micki! John K.
