Saturday:) Salve Regina

“All my own perception of beauty both in majesty and simplicity is founded upon Our Lady.” » ~J.R.R. Tolkien

**************

Being snowed in, with long cold days and even longer Chicago nights, it’s good to have an artistic outlet. While Mom slept a little, I was going through her old Magnificat (daily Catholic prayers and Mass readings) I thought it would be nice to find some psalms or hymns that I could embellish. I thought a simple rose would brighten up the page.

This is a very nice prayer to the Blessed Mother. Quite appropriate, as I sat near my own blessed mother. Mom thought they were pretty nice too.

As my adventures have been few, I’ll be sharing little blessings, here and there.

And I’ll admit, I’ve been saying many prayers to the Blessed Mother. When I can’t fall sleep, I say “Hail Marys” until I’m lulled into sleep. It works. Give it a try.
