Flowers for the Immaculate Conception (Construction & suggestions edition)

Our Latino community is re-doing the Guadalupe Shrine. The steps and their walls are all fresh cement. The lighting will all be replaced and much added. The cross at the top will be a bit bigger. There will be flowering bushes and flowers at the sides. This is the new statue that will be going up, blessed just the other day (always lots of flowers, of course):

Suggestions are welcome. They would like nine extremely brief biblical citations to be painted on the faces of the steps going up. Perhaps a few citations from the apparitions could also be interspersed. Ideas? Very, very brief. Almost cryptic! ;-)

    Way to go! I finally got to visit the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Lacrosse (built by Cdl Burke) recently and I bough t there a 16×20 poster print of OLG for $4.99 in their fantastic gift shop. I got a used frame at SVDP and hung it up in my catechism classroom yesterday. “Look who!” I said. “La Virgencita!” exclaimed several 6th graders. I found that touching.

    it can’t be titles from the Litany of Loretto?

    Ora Pro Nobis
    Mater Amata
    Dulcissima
    Piisima
    Sanctissima
    Spes Nostra
    Salve Regina
    To be read in ascending order.

    A woman clothed with the sum!
    This is beautiful shrine. Is it near you, Father? I would love to visit it the next time I make the pilgrimage to NE

    @ Gina … My parish in Andrews!

  8. That certainly is a nice outdoor shrine, there should be more of them. The lines from the Hail Mary would fit on those steps?
