Recently we had beautiful yellow roses on the Altar to celebrate a Sister’s Golden Jubilee. Outside the rose season is here. Alas the deer ate most of our roses. Perhaps they taste as good as the look! Having never tried one, I don’t know.
Do you know this devotion to the Rosa Mystica? Our Blessed Mother has visited us under many “titles” – and this one is rather new to me. How lovely to begin a new devotion in the month of June – and on 13 June at that.
Our age is so harsh. Every day we read of more blood shed and violence. We need our Mystic Rose – in fact the 3 Roses: PRAYER, SACRIFICE and PENANCE. Let us join our prayers to hers to build a better world washed clean in the Precious Blood of the LAMB.
