PRAYER OF POPE JOHN XXIII O Mary
O Mary, you are praying for us, you are always praying for us. We know it, we feel it. Oh what joy and truth, what sublime glory, in this heavenly and human interchange of sentiments, words and actions, which the rosary always brings us: the tempering of our human afflictions, the foretaste of the peace that is not of this world, the hope of eternal life!
This is a small statue I received from my father’s mother, Theresa Longenecker. Grandma Longencker has been a role model for me being a Nana. She was the best. She could read a mind better than any one.
