Coaxing out divinity--what a gentle image. Yet I know some that would thump it out of me with a holy book! :)

I love that- "the sacred hidden within the ordinary".

Words to ponder on for some time that ring with truth.


Oh, my - She is breathtakingly beautiful! Her hand and face are amazing!

The "ordinary" is extraordinary, is divine - each event is a miracle and though it appears to be "the same old thing," it is not. The nuance of its occurrence is high magic and splendor and is able to be perceived by each one of us if we be open to it.


Mary's tears remind is our duty to wipe away the tears of the world...the starving child, the homeless mother, the victim of war.

These pictures are beautiful...
She is a Goddess, Rebecca. And so are you♄


Wonderful post and magnificent photography ~ Wondrous! ^_^

She is perhaps the most resplendant Virgin that we've ever laid eyes on, no? Her life-sized stature, those mournful tears, the velvet gown, the hankerchief in one hand and rosary of pearls in the other, the jewels and milagros on her belt...all so very magnificent, yet deadly serious at the same time. Her beauty and essence captivated me, as well...I so look forward to visiting her again with you in March!

Mary mornings are beautiful, each one shared in the house of belonging.

Thank you for the welcome. xxx


This Mary is the most beautiful I have seen. Just wonderful. Thank you Rebecca. Happy Mary Day to you.


Oh, the glimpse this figure through my window everyday. She is such an inspiration.

This Mary is exquisite. I love how worn her hands are. . . the flower between her fingers. . . her tears.


My heart is full of LOVE!


What a stunning image of Our Lady! Thank you so much for showing us this and for organizing VAD.xx


How I love 'the sacred hidden within the ordinary.' And how extraordinary it is to discover that,it is in our very ordinary lives AND we can share the sacred with one another! Thank you for sharing your wonderful words and images!

Unbelievably beautiful photographs. I want to know everything about them. Where is this gorgeous Madonna? Who owns her? Is this a church or sanctuary? I am stealing these pictures to keep on my computer's desktop!!! Oh, lucky you!!


I am always amazed at the statues of Mary that are dressed to the nines and adorned with much jewelry. If all this glitz were on a human it would be total overload and looked down upon, or snickered at and called gaudy. Yet on Mary, it "belongs". This is beautiful.

Thank you Rebecca, for allowing me to be a part of this 12 days. It was sometimes hard to keep up with because daily things get in the way, but I will miss it when it is over. God bless you.

It's interesting how much more disciplined I am about participating on working days. What will ever become of me when I stop officially working for money? Anyhow, what gorgeous photos from your Holy Week trip last year. I am in year four of Education for Ministry (EfM) and today I tried to condense the dogma of Mary's Immaculate Conception from Vatican I. I know I didn't know for a long time that it was about Mary's birth not Jesus's birth.


Singing in praise of the sacred with you, dear Rebecca! It is wonderful to be back here with you. And the exquisite details of this Mary is stunning! I wonder too, where was this picture taken? Blessings to you, my friend ((LOVE & HUGS))
