I envision these shrines linked together in a
each shrine a small window in the ordinary day
where the holy
is recognized as the unfolding rose
of Love present in each and every moment
I have started work on the 36 cards
of this Mary Oracle and
12 completely new shrines have been completed.
Each shrine takes a minimum of a week to create
and weeks to put together in collecting all the
bits n pieces
and in understanding its unique part in the greater story.
The Sacred Rosary Oracle of Mary deck
includes the four Initiations of Fire, Water, Air and Earth
in the life of Jesus and in the life of Mary;
the various apparitions of Mary, as well as
some of her sacred names.
It will also include the stories of Catholic Saints
such as Padre Pio, Saint Francis, Saint Anthony,
Saint Joseph, Mary Magdalene, Sarah-la-Kali, amongst others.
Pilgrimage to sacred places all over the world is what
I enjoy the most. And most of these shrines are based on holy
places that I have visited : the cave where the Archangel Michael
appeared three times in Italy, the village of Monte Sant'Angelo;
the shrine of Padre Pio at San Giovanni Rotondo; St Bridget in Kildare;
the Mary Chapel and Well and the sacred hawthorn tree planted by
St Joseph at Glastonbury Abbey in England; the shrine, cave and church
of Mary Magdalene in the South of France; the festival of
the black gypsy saint Sarah la-Kali, where the three Marys
landed in a small boat;
a pilgrimage to Lourdes, the Chapel of the Miraculous
Medal in Paris, the Notre Dame de Paris,
to mention but a few.
If you are interested in reading more about these pilgrimages
to Thailand, India, England and Europe,
you will find them all here on Her Grace as well as on
The Path of Divine Love (link on the right hand side).
I will be sharing these shrines and their development over
the next few weeks and months.
Each shrine incorporates the significance of colour,
flowers, holy medals, vintage holy cards,
statues, symbology related to astrology,
numerology and the spiritual significance of
these holy stories as related to our own
spiritual growth and development.
I hope you find it as fascinating as I do.
