"I Am the Immaculate Conception."
Happy Feast Day Holy Mother!
Our Lady of Lourdes ~Hector Garrido
At the National Shrine Mary’s Garden’s dedication on June 10, 2000, Msgr. Bransfield stated
in his remarks at the dedication:
"The Song of Songs speaks of ‘An Enclosed Garden’, ‘A Fountain Sealed’ – imagery referring to Mary’s fidelity, her immaculate conception, her perpetual virginity.
"May Mary’s Garden, designed with these words in mind, be a constant source of inspiration and renewal
to all who venture there to pray and rest." Info from mgrdens.org
It would be a good tradition to begin thinking of the plan of your Mary Garden during this great feast. As the Chrismas holidays draw to a close, contemplate during the dark winter months how you would best like to honor Our Holy Mother in your own Mary Garden next spring! Contemplate how you would like to create your own space to pray and rest in the arms of so loving a Mother!
