The Feast of the Birth of Mary originated in Palestine, going back the consecration of a church in Jerusalem; tradition identifies this church as St. Anne's. This photograph was taken at the St. Anne's Basilica in Jerusalem and is an icon depicting the infant Mary and her two Saintly parents, Anne and Joachim. Mary is the tiny person in the lower left corner, sitting in a caretaker's lap.
Greetings to all who love to wander along the paths of the Holy Scriptures! The purpose of this blog is to share some of the insights of ordinary Catholics who have begun to delve into the mysteries of the Sacred Scriptures. Hopefully you will find these reflections inspiring and insightful. We are faithful to the Church, but we are not theologians; we intend and trust that our individual reflections will remain within the inspired traditions of the Church. (If you note otherwise please let me know!) Discussion and comments are welcome, but always in charity and respect! Come and join us as we ponder the Sacred Scriptures, which will lead us on the path into His heart, which "God alone has traced" Job 28:23.
