It’s only mid-February and these beauties are to be seen everywhere.
Papal Colors are white and yellow. Well, here’s yellow. I’m waiting for white. But, hey, I’m at least halfway there. I’m sure our Lady appreciates that.
We must always but always pray for the Holy Father. If you don’t like him, pray for him! Goodness. Remember that scene in Mel Gibson’s Passion of the Christ when Cephas runs up and falls on his knees at the feet of our Lady, asking forgiveness, confessing to her that he had denied her dear Son three times? Remember that? Don’t you think she was praying for Peter?
People just don’t get this. I say that we should pray for Pope Francis, that I stand beside him in solidarity, that I will not abandon him, and people scream that I am a heretic just like him, blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. No, on all counts.
When I get a hold of some white flowers I’ll offer those to the Immaculate Conception as well.
By the way – and this directly to my internet stalker and all those he has named in his missives – we’ve all crucified the Son of the Living God, and the Son of the Immaculate Conception with our sin. I say, and please say with me, for all of us, including Pope Francis, “Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us, sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.”
Update: Well. There we are. After Mass this midday I noticed these white flowers outside the Church. Really tiny. So that completes in the same day this papist editions of Flowers for the Immaculate Conception. Yay!
