Flowers for the Immaculate Conception (Holy Name of Mary: Victory over Islamicists edition)

Seen out front of the rectory on this very day.

Mary – Miryam – Bitter Sea, who, with the clear vision of her Immaculate Conception saw all the terrible need of humanity as she stood under the Cross, and interceded for us in all that bitterness, then taking her dearest Son in her arms. She knows what it means to miss a son who was unjustly murdered. I’m asking her to give a big hug to the mother of Justin Carr…

Today is the feast of the Holy Name of Mary (referring particularly to Our Lady of Częstochowa) because this day, September 12, commemorates the day of final victory smashing back the Ottoman Empire with the Battle of Vienna and she had been named Protector in the battle.

Al Qaeda and ISIS have now taken the place of the Ottoman Empire. Calling on the Holy Name of Mary is most appropriate during an onslaught of Islamicists, and all the time. After all, she’s the good mom of Jesus, the King of kings, the Lord of lords, the Prince of the Most Profound Peace.
