Meet Mary

A little over a week ago I had the blessing to be able to travel to Washington DC.  Travel isn't easy with my disability but the flight was short so we made a go of it. The reason for the trip was a lovely belated birthday surprise from my husband who had heard months ago about an exhibit called Meet Mary at the National Museum of Women in the Arts.  It included many precious works of art all featuring Our Blessed Mother.  Some were from the Vatican, private collections and other museums.  The museum exhibit would be the opening to a blessed weekend of prayer at the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception and the St. John Paul II Shrine.  Indeed it was a time to Meet Mary. Throughout the trip at each step all the members of the Children's Rosary were in my prayers.   

Basilica of the Immaculate
As Our Lady always brings us to her Son there were a great many pictures of Mary by her Son on the Cross.  Indeed to meet Mary is to meet her Son as well. This week may we accompany Our Blessed Mother to the Foot of the Cross and through our presence show our love.

Thank you all and God Bless you. Amen.
