Flowers for the Immaculate Conception (Guessing these are flowers edition)


And if I’m wrong about these being flowers, methinks that Jesus’ good mom will just smile all the same. Heaven, for which we hope in the present, is a long time to be able to learn about such things, and laugh about it should we be wrong in all of our ignorance here upon this earth. There is a certain freedom in being a little child. Guessing what’s a flower for Jesus’ good mom is good “enough” because good is simply always good:

When I put up such posts as this I often think of someone who complained to me on a number of occasions about “flowers” for, like, Mary. “What’s the damn point?” But it wasn’t a question; it was more like a rant. The more I tried to use the occasion to teach, the more condescending this person because, giving me a lecture about wasting people’s time. “Did you ever read any of these posts?” I asked. “No. Why bother?” was the response.

I guess it’s the kind of thing you don’t understand until you grab a flower and put it in a vase and bring it to church and put it in front of Mary and light a candle and say a prayer for the living and the dead. In leaving, you’ll notice something is different in your life.

The most practical thing in the world is to give a flower to the Immaculate Conception, and yes, it bears saying more than once. It’s worth doing more than once.

    Presentation &prayer, ranter, that is what this dear priest is offering and allowing us to participate!

  2. To the ranter: would you ever tell your earthly mother you love her?
    What’s the point of that either? Not very practical, right?
    Showing someone love grows the love in you. We’re not robots. We are, on every practical level, made for love. So flowers for our mothers are very to the point indeed!
