My dear friends, I have enjoyed each and every day I have been blessed to have been a part of your mornings with Mary...thank you. This is our final post but I hope that we stay connected as sisters in Christ and lovers of Mary, Our Blessed Mother.
I am sharing this image of Our Lady of Guadalupe painted on wood. It was a gift from my last living aunt, who still lives in Mexico. She is my fathers cousin and we all love her dearly. She sent all of us girls (I have 5 sisters), one each and they are just beautiful. As you can see from the size of the 9 foot Christmas tree that I used to prop her up for pictures, that she is quite large.
She permanently reside in our breakfasts nook and radiantly looks at us as we have our meals.
This 12 day journey was a retreat for me. It was about faith, religion, meditation, prayer, acceptance, and unconditional love. And so I end with a very familiar prayer...the Hail Mary.
Hail Mary, full of grace.
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou amongst women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for sinners,
now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Stay prayerful. Your sister in Christ.
