|Our Lady of New Life by Hettienne G|
Welcome to Mornings with Mary
Mornings with Mary
it is a celebration of all
in her many forms and aspects
in the many cultures and tradition
of our world.
Whatever this means to YOU.
and in whatever way you want to celebrate
the Divine World, both profane and sacred,
in your belief, in your creativity,
your understanding and
in your ideas and expression.
A place of sharing and growth!
The philosopher Thomas Moore, in his wonderful works on Soul,
really defines it for me. Everyone has a Soul and thus a religion of the Soul,
and that may be found in the enchantment of everyday living, in art as a sacred undertaking,
or it may be found in the practise and application of a holy book and its teachings.
For the past ten weeks I shared ten teachings from
the Wisdom of Mary, a book by Gina Lake.
Today I am starting with extracts from a very
The Blessed Virgin Mary, Her Life and Mission
by Corinne Heline.
The Madonna Flower Cycle
Each month the Virgin Mary bestows some special blessing
upon the children of men. Each month has a spiritual key
flower corresponding to those special powers of the
January is the month of they hyacinth, its colors and its
fragrance speak of better things to come and of
happier days to be. January is the month of Capricorn which
speaks of new ideals and the fruition of every new and
February is the month which commemorates the
purity of the Virgin.
The snowdrop, emblem of virgin
chastity, is Her flower.
Quantities of its blossoms
are strewn at this season
altars of prayer and worship.
In March the White Lily blooms to celebrate the
Festival of Annunciation. The Marigold is also
dedicated to the Virgin Mother of Jesus at this
season, meaning that Mary's gold is now available
for anyone who wills to come and freely
partake of its bounty.
April claims the soft flowering of the Primrose,
the first rose of the year. The rose is the most
sacred symbol of Mary and her purest sacred heart.
May is the month of the Madonna,
the month of mothers.
May is enshrouded with that holy light
of mother love
which lifts the heart to a
divine realization only to that
of the Christ.
Showers of blessings
the heart in the lovely month -
blossom in Roses,
the beloved flower of the Madonna
and a reflection
of the Mystic Rose which
blooms eternally in her heart
for all the
mothers in the world.
I hope that you had a lovely Mother's day yesterday!
Let's hope that Mr Linky co-operates this week!!
