Flowers for the Immaculate Conception (Our Lady of Sorrows, edition)

This feast day of Our Lady of Sorrows follows the feast of the Exaltation of the Cross. Throughout my life the two feast days of John the Baptist (his birth and martyrdom) and also the tandem feasts of the Exaltation of the Cross and of Our Lady of Sorrows have brought life changing events to yours truly.

It’s because I need all the help I can get and I need to pay attention to dearest John, to the cross, and to the sorrows of our Lady (hint: because that’s not what I do on my own, wretch that I am).

To make this post short and sweet, recall the comments of the Venerable Fulton J Sheen on anyone’s autobiography, who our lives are written out in the wounds of dearest Mary’s dear Son, Jesus. There I am for all to see, and you as well:
