One of my friends shared this beautiful picture with our local Catholic homeschool group. I think that it would look lovely hanging on a wall in our home. I can dream...
Sweet Mother! lend me Thine eyes
to see the beauty of Jesus;
Thine ears to hear His faintest whisperings;
Thy lips to adore, praise, bless,
petition and love Him;
Thine arms to hug Him to my soul;
Thy heart to hold Him in time and eternity.
Let our thoughts become lilies for Mary's shrine,
and our hearts tabernacle lamps for His sanctuary.

O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee!
