SHE IS THE FLOWER

She is the flower, the violet,
the blossoming rose
that gives out such a scent to
satisfy us all...
--Gautier De Coincy, 13th century
Blessed Sister, Holy Mother...
Blessed sister, holy mother, spirit of the fountain, spirit of the garden
Suffer us not to mock ourselves with falsehood
Teach us to care and not to care
Teach us to sit still
Even among these rocks,
Our peace in His will
And even among these rocks
Sister, mother,
And spirit of the river, spirit of the sea,
Suffer me not to be separated
And let my cry come unto Thee.
--T. S. Eliot. Although this is not a traditional prayer, this brief except from the prayer, Ash Wednesday, was especially suitable for the Madonna
