Mary and Pentecost

A very dear friend made this beautiful image of our lady. She says she wasn’t satisfied with it but I love it! I look through it to all the sweet humble virtues of that young Hebrew maid.I ponder as Pentecost approaches where Mary spent these few days after the Ascension and then the time after Pentecost.I love this quote:

   "I am sure the whole baby Church was as much in our Lady's care as her own Baby had been and that for the twelve years or so she continued to live in Jerusalem, she spent nearly all her time between praying at home and praying in the Temple, and that only when the Apostles got to Heaven did they realize how much her prayers had had to do with their wonderful success." (from:"The First Christians: The Acts of the Apostles for Children".by Marigold Hunt)

Wow; what a beautiful way of combining Catholic and Waldorf...felting Mary! You have given me some inspiration to think outside the box, I am sending a link to your blog to my homeschooling Catholic friends, especially the ones who are also Waldorfy.
