Mornings with Mary: Faith

Dearest Mother Mary,
I desire faith,

faith as deep as the one
my kitty Jax has in me.
As neatly tied up
and ever available
as I picture yours was
when the angel Gabriel
announced your role
in the birth of Our Lord.
Help me to have the vision
of the path that leads
to your Son
with clarity and steadfast faith.

more Mornings with Mary

Really nice prayer. I wish for the same. Cute Jax in the box. Does he sleep in your dresser drawer?

I missed this week. I just love your symbolism of having the faith of a kitten - it reminds of the Bible text of the faith of a sparrow!

Norma Ruttan said...

thank you, Hettienne!
