Lady Comfort

Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe, Mission San Xavier del Bac, Tucson, Arizona
“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.”

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

  1. I love that you are gathering and sharing Joe’s comments…he was always so thoughtful
    and interested. ♥♥

  2. Beautiful Haiku and the tiles of Mary are just excellent, as are Joe’s words. Thanks you. Have a wonderful day.

  3. I remember Joe’s comment very clearly – it made me think as I never did wonder about that detail – after that I did wonder, often! good friends, fruit, bread, wine and Mary – what more could one ask for?

  4. well said, dear-heart

  5. This is an outstanding piece and I remember seeing it before. The questions Joe asked then are questions I would have today. I have always assumed tile work is done a tile at a time, but maybe not. I have been in Tucson other times in the past, but I wasn’t in my endless seeking of Mary. I’d look at everything with such a different eye if I were visiting now.

  6. very gracious: words and image; thanks for your stopover at my blog

    much love…

  7. thank you for being a warm shelter of nurturing kindness.

  8. {{ i find comfort
    in reading your remembrance
    of dear joe … }}
