The Most Beautiful Gift of Mary

Little Jesus,  
my sweet Lamb,  
would that my heart 
might be your cradle.
I hold Him 
and will not let Him go 
because I chose Him 
for all my Good.

St. Peter Thomas, Patriarch of Constantinople: Memorial, Jan. 8

Saint Peter-Thomas, Patriarch of Constantinople
Blessed are the lives of those who are consumed in the service of Holy Church! 
~ St. Teresa of Jesus 

St. Peter Thomas was inspired by an intense desire to promote peace and Christian unity. Quoting from the web site below, "His life may be summarized in three words: Mary, Union of the Greeks, and Jerusalem."
 St. Peter Thomas

I love the artist's touch of placing over the Carmelite heart the monogram of Mary.

It is good on His Heart!
Let us live holy lives that we may rest there one day.
Bouasse Lebel 936
