“That is a very beautiful image of our Lady. I love how striking the purple gown is. Cool stuff. Glad I have been seeing you every day during this Virgin Business. It has been a wonderful journey. Peace my friend, Peace and love”

Let it be to me
as the Holy One has said—
I am God’s handmaid.

“That’s cool! I wonder if each tile was made and then matched or painted on the tiles after they were put together. How tall is this? Looks like it is on a wall high above your head. Your words are truly gracious for Our Lady.”
 
(Comment left by Joe Spado aka Spadoman, blogger at Round Circle, when this post was first published on 6 December 2011. Joe’s sudden and unexpected death two days ago has left many hearts bereft.)

 


My Lady Comfort,
just to see your gracious face—
fruit and bread and wine!

“That is a beautiful shrine. I must get to this church next time in Tucson. I’m sad that I’ve missed it in the past with as often as I go there or pass through. Maybe in late March or April this year if all goes well. Thanks for posting this photo. I like it a lot. Peace.”
 
(Comment left by Joe Spado aka Spadoman, blogger at Round Circle, when this post was published originally on 7 December 2011. Joe died suddenly and unexpectedly yesterday as he was traveling in South Dakota with his beloved wife Barbara. We miss you, Joe. There’s much less kindness and gentleness on Earth now that you are gone.)

 

With malice toward none,
she opens her arms with joy
to embrace the world.
