I am consecrated to Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. I know that many people have a difficult time understanding the Catholic perspective on Mary and many may not understand why we do this. One thing is clear though: The Father of all creation, the Author of Life entrusted His Beloved Son into the arms of this woman; she cradled Him in her womb, she cradled Him as a baby, and she cradled Him in her arms after He was taken down from the cross. If the Great I Am could place such trust in Mary....then why shouldn't I?

Mary is a stumbling block to many religions. Catholics do not worship Mary, we honor her. As the mother of the Savior of the world, this honor is rightfully hers. The quickest way to learn about Mary is to ask the Holy Spirit for help. He is Truth Itself. He will show you the meaning of the words that Jesus spoke from the cross, "Behold, your mother".

Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival

Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival  hosted by RAnn at This That and the Other Thing is a weekly meme where bloggers share their favorite posts. For the month of October I will be doing this meme from The Mystical Rose because it is the month of the Rosary. This week I'd like to share this post ; this thought popped into my head while praying the Rosary one day and stayed there. Another post I'd like to share is ; though the loss of this child caused me tremendous grief, I know I will meet this son or daughter in heaven someday.

Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival

Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival

I am joining RAnn today at for Sunday Snippets - A Catholic Carnival, where Catholic bloggers join together to share some of there favorite posts. I decided to use The Mystical Rose this time for the Meme because it's the month of the Rosary and I wanted to honor Mother Mary. My husband is a convert to Catholicism and also loves Our Lady. Today I'd like to share these posts:

  3. The third post is a poem about Mother Mary;
I love writing poetry because it comes from the heart. Thank you Jesus for giving us your mother!

St. Therese

O Little Flower
Even now I hear the ringing of bells and angelic applause
which greeted your arrival at the narrow gate.
In your little way, you slipped right through
the eye of the needle with a childlike grace.
Plucked from the world in the tenderness of  your youth,
a flower in full bloom, petals raised to the Son,
the odor of your sanctity reaches us still.
A shower of roses....A heavenly bouquet.
We ask for your intercession and help.
May we learn from you, St. Therese
that little acts done with great love
are more pleasing to the Father
than great acts done with little love.
Pray for us...that when we pass into eternity,
we too may slip easily through the narrow gate.

An endless refrain

Tears flow
A gentle rain
A mother's heart
Broken again

Children, come back
Heed my call
Return to my son
He died for you all

Soften your hearts
Pray! Pray! Pray!
Will we listen? I ask
To her message today?
