Flowers for the Immaculate Conception (only on Communion Calls, edition)

I dunno, but I get the impression that those priests who do not fulfill their duties to provide the Sacraments to the Little Flock of Jesus also don’t have the opportunity to “pick” flowers for the Immaculate Conception that I do, and even if they had the opportunity apart from visiting the elderly and sick and dying at their homes they might well not see what is right in front of them. Bringing Jesus to His Little Flock opens one’s eyes to the maternal goodness of Jesus’ good mom for Jesus’ Little Flock. And one wants to give her the flowers created by her dear Son that we might do just that. So, flowers for you, Mary. Hail Mary…

    The rose at the head of your post, Father, is beautiful and especially fitting as we are now in the month of May, the month of Mary.
    Having prayed the Hail Mary you began for us at the end of your post and having recently enjoyed some of my favourite Marian hymns on youtube, the thought struck me that they are yet “other flowers” for Our Lady. Two of these, in particular, I thought fitted with your post. The link to each follows.

    “Bring Flowers of the Rarest”

    Different renditions vary the lyrics but the words used by this chap are:
    Bring flowers of the rarest, bring blossoms the fairest, from garden and woodland and hillside and dale.
    Our full hearts are swelling, our glad voices telling, the praise of the loveliest flower of the vale.

    O Mary we crown thee with blossoms today, Queen of the Angels and Queen of the May.
    O Mary we crown thee with blossoms today, Queen of the Angels and Queen of the May.

    Sing gaily the chorus, the bright angels o’er us, re-echo the strains we begin upon earth.
    Their harps are repeating the notes of our greeting for Mary herself is the cause of our mirth.

    O Mary we crown thee with blossoms today, Queen of the Angels and Queen of the May.
    O Mary we crown thee with blossoms today, Queen of the Angels and Queen of the May.

    “Ave Maria” (Schubert’s?)
