Twelve days with Mary - Day 6







With whom can we compare you,
O Mother of Grace and beauty
You are the paradise of God.



From you springs the fountain 
of living water 
that irrigates the whole earth

-  St Bernard of Clairvaux

  4. in mexico to comfort our lady of sorrows entire windows, courtyards, rooms, become shines often holding life size Madonna's hundreds of years old. on this day there are symbols that appear to adorn her. a precious while lace handkerchief is placed lovingly in her hand, sometimes a gold dagger enters her heart, and radiant diamond tears grace her cheeks. your mary takes me to this night of nights in san miguel where the entire town walks quietly house to house to marvel in this ancient tradition that goes back 500 years.
