Today for the Feast of the Holy Name of Mary. The girls and I drew pictures of our Blessed Mother as we talked about her.
Our eight year old was able to remember to draw Mary crushing the head of Satan, see right.
I helped the 5 year old by drawing an outline of the face of Mary that she could fill in.
"Hail Mary, Full of Grace, the Lord is with Thee. Blessed art thou among women and Blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, Pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen."
Speak today the name of Mary with reverence and respect. She is our advocate and role model, our friend and our Mother. "O Mary, conceived without sin, Pray for us who have recourse to thee."
