This tenth day of a Shrine a Day for Mary
I offer you the
Our Lady of Fatima shrine.
A handmade clay grotto chapel,
porcelain statue, porcelain roses, porcelain doves
beads and lilies made of cloth
and the words of
Andrew Harvey from The Return of the Mother
The old version of Mary as passive and submissive is a lie.
Look deeply at the story and you see in it a woman of immense
strength, surrendered to God, but not submissive;
humble, patient, tender, infinitely focused on and
burning with real love, but never passive.
The Mother and her Son came to show us a revolutionary new way
of enacting and witnessing love in action in the world,
not simply to alleviate suffering, but to conspire with the
inner will of grace to change everything and to transform this world.
And this is why Mary has been appearing with such regularity over the last
150 years - because she cares, and cares absolutely
she cares personally and with a tremendous
suffering intimacy for the future of humanity and of the planet.
She has again and again said that she is the Mother of all human beings,
the universal Queen of Peace.
Please visit Rebecca at
for these last few days of sharing
in the Pilgrimage of Mary, the divine feminine in
everything and everyone.
