Flowers always capture our attention no matter where we are. They are by far one of the most creative works of the Lord – for they come in different colors, fragrance and shapes.
This one in particular caught our eyes when we were in Yugoslavia many years ago, at the foot of the Mount Krizevac – meaning “Mount of the Cross”. At that place, even the flowers, or perhaps the animals and insects, have the knowledge of God’s presence. Ironically we human beings, created in His image and likeness, fail to have this knowledge.
As we celebrate the Solemnity of the Assumption of Mary, we continually ask her to pray for us to receive this knowledge of God in our lives. Amen. By B
