Holy, holy, holy
the great Mother of God,
Mary most holy
To me, the Blessed Mother is not limited to any religion, any dogma or any culture.
The Soul has its own religion and that is where you will find Her and Her many faces.
She is present for all
Her Grace enfolds everyone
You only have to become aware of Her.
Wherever I travel in the world, I visit Her sacred shrines.
I have visited Kwan Yin in Ayutthaya in Thailand;
Kali Ma in Her many temples in India;
I have attended the Navaratri and Durga Puja, the nine nights of the Goddess in Varanasi;
the holy well and holy fire of Brigit in Kildare;
the Goddess Temple in Glastonbury
all of these have been numinous experiences
that touched me deeply
me so profoundly
Our Lady of Lourdes.

This is my latest offering in my Etsy shop.
Mary Most Holy wearable shrine and altar.
A beautiful cathedral window arch, soldered with
lead free silver solder
with a piece of a prayer card from Lourdes
set between two pieces of glass.
On the back I added a prayer cut from a Mary prayer book
I attached the pendant to a piece of hand dyed pure silk ribbon,
ready to wear or to attach to your rosary or chain.
All my pendants are anointed with sacred oil containing
53 relics, and this one comes packed with dried rose petals
steeped in St Therese of Lisieux holy oil.
