Flowers for the Immaculate Conception (Once a mother always a mother, ed.)


These scene is just outside our Holy Redeemer Catholic Church in Andrews, NC. Usually, stand alone statutes of Jesus’ good mom are standing, looking straight forward. But here we see her kneeling and looking down to her side as if she were – of course – looking at Baby Jesus in the crib. But no Jesus! That’s no fair!

Ah, but wait just one second. There He is. Just down the steep hill where she is looking. He’s now grown up, and gone through His Passion and Death and Resurrection. I love this. It points to the fact which all mothers know so very well: once a mother, always a mother. Here, she’s behind her Son, pushing Him to the fore. That would be right. :-)
