Our Lady of Tenderness

I am the mother of fair love,
and of fear, and of knowledge, and of holy hope.
~Sirach 24:24

Sweet Mother, hold me close to your heart.
It pulsates with the life and love of your Beloved Son, Jesus.
Its every beat proclaims Him, its every throb glorifies Him.
I want to live like this ~ like you! ~ but I am selfish and afraid.
Hold me close, dear Mother, and show me
how to be a living sacrifice of praise for Him!
