Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary

The picture is of the head of Mater, the painting of Our Lady as sitting in a very contemplative mood with an open book on top of her work basket. I love to think of Mary with an open book, but I imagine she did not even have a scroll! The picture of Our Lady was painted in the 19th century; Mary did not have or need a book to pray. She sees the invisible and the essential. I will be spending the day with other leaders of Centering Prayer. May Mary give all of us her contemplative outlook so that we see the invisible and the essential.
