Lovely Lady, Thank You!

“Lovely Lady dressed in blue, teach me how to pray!  God was just your little boy, tell me what to say!  Did you lift Him up, sometimes, gently on your knee?  Did you sing to Him the way mother does to me?  Did you hold His hand at night?  Did you ever try telling stories of the world?  O!  And did He cry?  Do you really think He cares if I tell Him things, little things that happen?  And do the Angels’ wings make a noise?  And can He hear me if I speak low?  Does He understand me now?  Tell me, for you know?  Lovely Lady dressed in blue, teach me how to pray!  God was just your little boy, and you know the way.” 

–Poem/prayer by Mary Dixon Thayer [later popularized by Archbishop Fulton Sheen]

Thank you, Mama.

Happy Mother’s Day!
