What do you see when you see the dirt on these flowers (it being that there is construction nearby, no fault of the flowers)? Do you pass these flowers by? Surely there are other flowers that aren’t so besmirched. Or do you continue to see the goodness of the flowers in and of themselves, still brilliantly being flowers no matter what this world has to attempt to take them down with? Probably degrees of both at the same time. We need to learn so much. Of course, you know what the analogies to our own interactions with others are…

Meanwhile, Our Lady sees exactly how we’ve actually been besmirched from the inside out by original sin and whatever other rubbish, but she also sees how much her dear Son loves us and gave Himself for us, standing in the place of our besmirchment so as to have the right in His own justice to have mercy on us. She intercedes for us as only a good mom can do. Thank you Mary.
