I could not resist a quick post on the feast of Mater. As a graduate of the Sacred Heart, I learned at an early age that when I needed guidance I could turn to Mary. I know that this might be false idolatry. If it is, call me a heretic.
I love the story of Pauline Perdeau and her fresco. I think that she is a beautiful example of courage and faith. From Pauline's story I reminded about the importance of fearlessness. From Mary's story I am reminded about being a mother and a worker (open book and distaff tell us thou hast labored to as we) and it is in honoring Mary's life that I hope to set an example for La Luz and strive to be a mother most admirable.
