Love the tangible connection (noue) these pearly textiles make to liturgical vestments made by lacemaker Blessed Azélie-Marie "Zélie" Martin née Guérin. Lacey appliques in students prayer journals may deepen the sacramental meme of Mary's fiat untying Eve's knot during Holy Baptism, as in "Who can find* a woman of worth? Far beyond pearls is her value... she puts her hands to the distaff, and her fingers ply the spindle* | Proverbs 31:10, 19 http://www.usccb.org/bible/proverbs/31#24031019-1
The Visitation - Beautiful...Blessed Mother Mary pregnant with Jesus greeting Saint Elizabeth pregnant with Saint John the Baptist, who at the sounding of the voice of the visiting Blessed Mother pregnant with the Lord, leapt for joy in his mother's womb. "For behold as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy." Luke 1:44 :) God is pro-life.
