Flowers for the Immaculate Conception (More Lenten purple: Ninjas edition)

As tiny as our parish is, we have lots of really incredible people here. Very many are women. Some would call them “church ladies.” I don’t. I call them ninjas. The reason is that they can do just about anything, including making sure purple flowers like these blossom during Lent. These are along the ultra-steep driveway going up to the church from the street. O.K., I call them ninjas not just because they can do just about anything, it’s that many of them, even in their 80s, are accomplished martial artists, as they are rightly called. I think our Lady, while not being a ninja, is more able than they to do just about anything at all, and if she can’t, she knows those who can, the angels and her Divine Son. Better to give her some flowers!

    Just got home from church. Liturgy, follows by cleaning, lunch and more polishing the Gospel book cover so it’s shinier for tomorrow. Pussy willow shoots and Palm fronds have been bundled together, Palm leaves have been put in vases and the Palm Sunday icon is on display.
