Flowers for the Immaculate Conception (Challenge to my “Shadow” edition)


Get a framed picture – and put it up – of Our Lady of Guadalupe – or a little statue, and make a shrine for it – and then get a flower, any flower, even like a gone-to-seed dandelion, and put that in front of that image. And then say a Hail Mary. This changes everything, as it gives you hope. I want you to know that you have hope. Anyone can do this. Kinda like that one painting:

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

    Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy
    Hail, our life, our sweetness and our HOPE
    To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve

    Hail Holy queen enthroned above
    O Maria
    Hail mother of Mercy and of Love
    O Maria
    Triumph all ye cherubim
    Sing with us ye seraphim
    heaven and earth resound the hymn
    Salve, salve,
    Salve Regina.

    Thanks to sanfelipe007 for reminding me of this beautiful hymn which refrain I have sung many times in Lourdes. I did not know the English words to it and in fact before visiting Lourdes had never even heard the hymn before. SALVE SALVE SALVE REGINA.
