Flowers for the Immaculate Conception (Guadalupe has the last laugh edition)


There, on the lower-right, two roses popping out from the Superabundant Guadalupe Rose. Shadow-dog did the honors earlier in the year by trimming it down to four-fifths of it before I could get it transplanted about thirty yards out of his reach, out on the front road, next to the “Town Branch.” The water had come up to the flower bed for a while as Tropical Storm Alberto passed by just to the West. Many of the roads round about in the parish were impassible for flooding. There are about a dozen analogies to be made.

    -Like the Guadelupe Rose, Goodness & beauty will never die.
    -” ” ” transplanting to another place makes us grow.
    -” ” ” sometimes God uses a chainsaw, sometimes little pruning shears, but always for the health of our souls.
    – Like the Guadelupe Rose, disruption from our settled place, whether by good or evil (not Shadow dog) cannot stop the love of God for us.
    I don’t think these are analogies…simillies?…but those are the obvious ones that I see. Any one else?

    Something from one of the secrets of Fatima? The Church is renewed by the blood of martyrs ?

    Off-topic update to Father: My friend Clint passed away peacefully last night. Thank you for your prayers. May we all receive the gift of a happy death.
