The Blessed Virgin Mary in Scripture & Tradition

Scroll down to content

A garden bower in flower
Grew waiting for God’s hand:
Where no man ever trod,
This was the Gate of God.
The first bower was red —
Her lips which “welcome” said.
The second bower was blue —
Her eyes that let God through.
The third bower was white –
Her soul in God’s sight.
Three bowers of love
Now Christ from Heaven above.

— LAWRENCE HOUSMAN

.

Humility is a passive virtue: it is a readiness to accept what is born not of blood, nor of the flesh, nor of man’s will; a readiness to welcome God who comes down.”
Fr. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

.

And Mary said:
My soul does magnify the Lord.
And my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour.
For he has regarded the lowliness of his handmaid;
for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me
blessed. Because he that is mighty, has done great things
to me; and holy is his name.
Luke 1, 46-49
