This flower for our Lady on her birthday is not from Holy Souls Mountain, but was, instead, supplied to me in .tiff form, which I put up as a jpeg (smaller), and this, all the way from Australia, from C.W. Thanks, C.W., for that gift to the Blessed Virgin on her Birthday.
And it is her birthday, unless you rebel against the liturgical calendar of the Roman Catholic Church as do Medjugorjites, who now and again check in on the blog to see in any more comments were made to the this post.
Imagine, Jesus’ mom using an apparition of hers to cause division in the Church, a rejection of the liturgical calendar so integral to the life of the faithful. Or, well then, maybe she didn’t appear there to do that.
While some might say that the calendar is merely discipline and can be changed, so, whatever, it’s no big deal, instead… instead… the calendar precisely as discipline is extremely important to the unity of the Church. It must be respected, not despised.
This is precisely the kind of contention agaisnt the Church which Saint Paul condemns in no uncertain terms. It is better to be simple children of the Church, not those who arbitrarily undermine this and then that and then the other thing. So, having said that, we have the joy this very day of exclaiming:
Happy Birthday to you, O Most Blessed Virgin Mary!!!
