Who has ever been stronger than Mary?
Anyone then who wishes to live in the valley
of humility must conquer
All the power of great love
- Hadewijch of Antwerp
Sacred Mysteries of Mary Deck
She will take the racked treasure of our suffering
on her knees and place it beside the
tortured relic of Christ's body.
Her arms contain all the suffering of the whole of humanity,
the countless ever-growing number of wounds
of a human race which is continuously crucified.
- Edward Schillebeecks
I am participating in
Twelve Days with Mary love
as hosted by Rebecca at www.corazon.typepad.com.
This is an annual circle of connection and sharing
of inspiration and Mary love, much
wider than culture, religion or dogma.
