In honor of Mary, the mother of Jesus, I wrote this cinquain. It’s no secret that we Catholics love Mary — some non-Catholic Christians think that we place too much emphasis on her, without realizing that she actually brings us closer to Jesus — and today is a special, holy day honoring Mary’s Immaculate Conception.
Bedecked in blue,
Intercede for us with
Your Son, God – whom you carried in
Ora pro nobis means “pray for us” in Latin.
