Tota Pulchra Es...

Painting by Federico 
“You are all beautiful, Mary,
and the original sin is not in you.
You are the glory of Jerusalem,
You are the joy of Israel.
You give honor to our people.
You are an advocate of sinners.
O Mary,
Virgin most intelligent,
Mother most merciful,
Pray for us,
Plead for us,
to the Lord, Jesus Christ.

Painting by Petrus Van Schendel

“Advent is the time 
to allow the light of Christ 
to dawn in the darkness of our heart.
 To sit with Him in silence, 
to sit with Him in quiet, 
to make that journey 
with Joseph and Mary 
and to let God speak
in these deep places.”
Sister Miriam James, SOLT

God's little dew drop...

"To be His,
 we must remain little, 
little like a drop of dew.
Oh! How few are the souls
who aspire to remain little
in this way."
St. Therese of Lisieux

 to have given wings to my soul
 and lifted it up!"

Brides of the King...

Painting by Henri Gervex
“Either we are brides
 of so great a King
or we are not.
If we are, 
what honorable woman is there
who does not share 
in the dishonors
done to her spouse
Even though she does not will them?”
                                                                     St. Teresa of Avila

Strewing flowers...

Painting by Victor Gilbert
"I shall strew flowers before Your throne. I shall not come upon one without scattering its petals before You. While I am strewing my flowers, I shall sing, for could one cry while doing such a joyous action? I shall sing even when I must gather my flowers in the midst of thorns, and my song will be all the more melodious in proportion to the length and sharpness of the thorns."
                                                                                                                            St. Therese of Lisieux

"The closer one approaches to God,
 the simpler one becomes."
                              St. Teresa of Avila

Women to aid...

Painting by Charles Courtney Curran
 "The hour is coming, in fact has come, when the vocation of woman is being achieved in its fullness, the hour in which woman acquires in the world an influence, an effect and a power never hitherto achieved. That is why, at this moment when the human race is undergoing so deep a transformation, women impregnated with the spirit of the Gospel can do so much to aid mankind in not falling."
                                                                                                                                      Saint Pope Paul VI
