I delight to be Your child, O Mary

Domenico Corvi: María y el Niño

O Queen and Beauty of Carmel,
I rejoice to be
in Your Motherly care.
No harm shall come to me
beneath Your watchful eye

I love Your tender smile
and the assurance of
my tiny hand in Yours.
O Mary, Fragrance of Holiness!
Purity beyond comprehension!
I delight to be Your child.

O Full of Grace,
draw me close to You
and let Your Motherly touch
leave traces of Your Sanctity
in my poor soul,
like a lingering perfume.

I thank God that
You are my Mother
for always.
O lovely and incomparable
Virgin Mary!

  1. Amen. How it must surely delight our Blessed Mother to read these most loving words!
    So beautiful…so fitting!
    love and blessings as always, my dear friend…xoxox

    • Thank you, Trish! What a beautiful Mother she is! We are so blessed to have her love and care. Hope you had a very Happy Mother’s Day! I will soon be having my first “Gram day” 🙂 Hooray for that! Hope it falls on one of the lovely feasts coming up this month. Hugs to you dear friend!

    • Thanks, Mary! Do you think Our Lady puts our little verses about her on a big refrigerator up in heaven? 😉 You know, I think she probably has a very special place where she keeps all the “flowers” we offer to her. Won’t it be fun to see?

      Thanks so much for the congrats! I wish the house next door to my son was for sale 🙂 I imagine my DIL is glad it is not…lol! We live 45 minutes away, and it’s TERRIBLE!

    • God be praised, indeed! Thank you, Nancy! You are so kind to think of me. I’ve already posted the badge in my sidebar 🙂 And, I will pass on this award to a couple of bloggers who inspire me….and you are certainly among that group! Thanks again! xoxo
