The Immaculate Heart Of Mary

"God our Father,
  you created a worthy dwelling-place for the Holy Spirit
in the heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
 Grant that through her prayers
  we may become a temple fit for your glory.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
  who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
  one God, for ever and ever.
Amen."                                                                             Universalis Prayer

What beauty you are from,
more radiant than stars,
you birth--
before all dark powers
and principalities--

the fully divine
and fully human son
of God. 

Your pearling rosary
like tiny moons orbiting
the mystery of love's
 joy and suffering
we are summoned into,

leading to you where I am,
leading to Jesus
where you are.

 Kneeling before you 
Queen Mary,
the dawn of your grace drawing 
us into the sanctuary 
of becoming;

the Lord speaking all into being,
even now, 
listen to his poetry
in the first light

illuminating the cellars 
 this praying 
winding through
our passageways of stone--

 the indissolubility 
of love.


  1. How beautiful! "illuminating the cellars within" What a delight to read. Thank you for sharing your gift!

  2. Thanks Heidi for dropping by and for your nice comments. So glad to meet you and I will stop by your site next...God Bless..

  3. our passageways of stones .....hard, stubborn, unyielding. Yet, no obstacle to a gentle Mother. And by this, She bids us follow Her leading, for us to minster to other passageways of stone, like She does.

    What gentle, yet searing inspiration. Thank you, Cynthia.
