The Feast Day of Our Lady – and spend the next 13 months with Her (and me)

Dear Ones,

My love, fascination, devotion to Our Lady started over 14 years ago. She is one of those special ICONS that once you connect with, it is almost impossible not to connect with Her everywhere. We can find so many references to her in North and South America….whether it is on a motorcycyle tank, tattoo, dollar-store candle or on the wall of a cathedral. She is one of the presences that invite you right where you are.

This year She invited me to spend it with Her….and I shall invite you as well to become a member of The Red Madonna Sisterhood….

Learn more about my 13 month offering to spend the YEAR with the Red Madonna!

Here is something I wrote her in 2004 — I wanted to share it with you today. Light your candles. Pour your tea and sit a while with Our Lady…see what sparks She lights in your heart…

Shiloh Sophia

our lady of everything

precious mother

hail, ma abundant

so full of grace

blessed art thou

among all mothers  and daughters

we who know you

beyond titles and concepts

blessed is the life-giving fruit

of your tree of life womb

wholly mary-ma

mother of god

praise you

for praying for us

now and in every hour of our need

you love us with everything you are

holding us in your

eternal embrace

beloved cosmic matrix

from which i came

wrap me as a babe

in your blue robe of stars

rock me on your seat of wisdom

sing me your songs

of rose petals and justice

dance christ’s love into my bones

keep me, precious mother

cradled in your milky way

our lady of faith

may i walk the path of truth

that sets me free

teach me

how to share your love

with my earthly family

blessed be our

mother of everyone

our lady of everything
