Monday Musings - As Only A Mother Can


(Originally posted August 14, 2017)
While I was on retreat last week at the Abbey of the Genesee, I paused (as I often do on my visits there) before the statue of our Blessed Mother which welcomes visitors to the monastery. 

It is a simple but beautiful image. I think you will agree.


This day, as I prayerfully gazed into her eyes, these words came to me:

"Come closer my child. Draw near to me. I want to embrace and kiss you as only a Mother can."

What a gift to us "poor banished children of Eve"!
