Flowers for the Immaculate Conception (Peachy irony edition)

These peach blossoms are near the hermitage.

Amidst the chaos and darkness and idiocy of this fallen world there is, at the same time, all that which is just peachy, but to see that which is peachy we have to have that which is given to us from the Most High, His sanctifying grace, bringing, of course, His love and truth and goodness. Ironically, the most purity of heart and agility of soul one enjoys in walking with the heavenly court while upon this earth, the more one sees, in contrast, all that chaos and darkness and idiocy. It is only a bond of charity that keeps us from running to the darkness so as to be blinded to it (not seeing the forest for the trees in front of you kind of thing). That bond of charity exemplified preeminently by the Immaculate Conception is better than the ignorance is bliss deception, much better.

    Father, do you know if the ” Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Movement” is based on genuine apparitions? The alleged seer was an Hungarian, Elizabeth Kindelmann (now deceased), who claimed that Our Lord and Our Lady want us to add the following to the second half of the Hail Mary: … pray for us sinners, “spread the effect of grace of thy Flame of Love over all of humanity,” now and at the hour of our death. If it is truly asked by Heaven that we do this I will but not if there is some doubt.

    No idea at all!
