Dec. 8th is the day of Our Lady of Immaculate Conception.
Celebrating 2 things : Holy Mary was born exempt from sin and She remained a Virgin through baby Jesus’ conception (which was the Holy Spirit’s work).
The opinion of what Virgin Mary’s status should be has been the cause of many conflicts. Whether or not she is “officially” the Queen of Heaven, one thing is undoubtedly sure, Virgin Mary has always been an advocate of humankind.
Always being one to mediate, to warn, to shake us up a little bit and to cry with / for us, Virgin Mary is a little bit closer to us all and has showed us many ways to pray the Lord and volunteered to pray for us too.
It might be too long, tiring or not your type of thing to say the rosary nor the Rosary but it shouldn’t stop you to pray Our Holy Mother. Using every heartfelt words, every one of your emotions and putting in it your very soul and motivation, Virgin Mary will not turn a deaf ear to your prayers, capable of miracles, capable to transmit your prayers directly to Her Holy Son, endowed with humanity and compassion, She will answer.
So in your moments of desperation, joy, doubt, those moments when you feel alone or far away from God, those moments that need an immediate answer and those that don’t need an answer at all, pray to Her. She is a Mother to us all. If possible, She will answer your prayer or take it to Her Son, if not, She will console you, rejoice with you, cry with you, She will not let you walk this road alone, She will be with you.
It’s not a waste, a heresy to pray her. And The Holy Mother would never ignore Her children.
Personally, I am devoted to The Virgin Mary, especially this version of Her and Our Lady Of Perpetual Help. She has never let me down, even in those moments when my faith is fading. December 8th and June 27th are days I love to celebrate, I try my best to go to church. I know I’m late but I just wanted to share it with you.
Someone told me I was sad
Another told me I had the blues
Someone told me to get it over with
Another told me I was just being lazy
Someone doesn’t speak to me anymore
And another told me I was a shut in
Someone told me I was just a hypocrite
Another told me to get over myself
That person doesn’t speak to me anymore
Someone told me I had been cared for too much
Another told me I was the embodiment of my generation
Someone told me I was just being irresponsible
Another added unreliable
Both don’t speak to me anymore
Someone told me I do it all for the attention
Another told me they were evil thoughts
Someone told me I was being ungrateful
Another told me it was because I was privileged
Yet another one doesn’t speak with me anymore
I tell myself all of those. I brew it in my head as soon as something goes wrong. I think of all the people I’ve lost. I conclude that I’m undeserving and worthless. I can’t think of a reason why things are this way, I figure out it’s because of me. It’s because I’m me. I’m thinking how unlucky my parents were to end up with me. I’m thinking how many lives and people I have changed, touched in a negative way because, it’s obvious, I’m me. I think God is the only one who loves me unconditionally, He has to but when the times come, will He choose me? Then my head empties and I can’t think, I don’t feel.. Life continues on.. I still can’t feel..
Leave me the fuck alone!
..I just want to be by myself..
..I feel so lonely..
I just want someone to be with me
..To understand me..
