Remember O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession, was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother; to you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful: O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your mercy hear and answer me. Amen.
The Memorare is an age-old prayer to Our Lady and a plea for intercession for God's divine graces. This is an easy prayer to teach your children and one that they can be encouraged to say especially if they are feeling anxious or upset about something. I know I always feel better after praying this beautiful prayer. I hope you will include it in your devotions to the Blessed Mother sometime soon.
We love to have special little places for Mary all around the house in May. Here's one we set up for her today as there is an abundance of these gorgeous Harebells popping up everywhere around us right now, they were the flower of choice!
This is our china hutch, it's perfect for displaying all our mini-Mary's and being able to see them during all our special times we share around the kitchen table. I see St. Patrick and the Infant of Prague have made an appearance as well, yippee!!
Many blessings in your weekend celebrations and I'd like to wish all my special Mommy visitors a delightful and relaxing Mother's Day!!
