September 30 – Our Lady of Beaumont, Lorraine, France (12th Century)

  “Joan Of Arc” Now the flames they followed Joan of Arc as she came riding through the dark; no moon to keep her armour bright, no man to get her through this very smoky night.

September 29 – Our Lady of Tongres, France (1081)

“Eden” by Emily Grosholz In lurid cartoon colors, the big baby dinosaur steps backwards under the shadow of an approaching tyrannosaurus rex. “His mommy going to fix it,” you remark, serenely anxious, hoping for the best.

September 27th – Our Lady of Happy Assembly Le Laus, France (1664)

The Hour Dylann Roof Sat In The Church by  Denice Frohman I. By now, you know their names, their cheekbones— the tender hands they offered when you walked in. You know the quivering strength of prayer and the art of making God listen. How faith can summon weary backbones into pyramids. And you know that graceContinue reading “September 27th – Our Lady of Happy Assembly Le Laus, France (1664)”

September 26: Our Lady of Victory at Tourney (1340)

O’ powerful Nike, by men desired, with adverse breasts to dreadful fury fired, Thee I invoke, whose might alone can quell contending rage and molestation fell. ‘Tis thine in battle to confer the crown, the victor’s prize, the mark of sweet renown; For thou rulest all things, Nike divine!

When once She was both abundant and ferocious; ever giving and asking a little in return. Yet even then, inContinue reading “Mother Dun”
