Unperturbed by Sunday morning visitors, bees and butterflies in the meditation garden feast on floral delicacies basking in the sun as we honor Mary within our sacred space.
“The flowers appear on the earth, the time of pruning the vines has come, and the song of the dove is heard in our land” (Song of Songs 2:12).
If God can clothe in such splendor the grass of the field, which blooms today and is thrown on the fire tomorrow, will he not provide much more for you…. Stop worrying, then…. Your heavenly Father knows all that you need. Seek first his kingship over you, his way of business, and all these things will be given you besides (Matthew 6:30-32).
