Ok, I Have Been Tagged! :)
I have no idea what prompted Meg (Transcendental Musings) to choose my Blog in the first place...she has tagged me for the "book meme", and happily, I will go along for the ride, lol...
I have been reading the Blogs of the other four women who are tagged along with me, and they are AMAZING women of great Faith and their Blogs are certainly worthy of much note...which makes me wonder why was I chosen to take part in such illustrious company?!?
I must admit, I am humbled...but I thank Meg for the chance to join in the fun!
Believe it or not, a book that I am "in the middle of" is The City of God, by Ven. Mother Mary of Agreda, dictated by no less a Personage than Our Lady Herself...so naturally, this being my Catholic Blog, and this being a handy "nearby" book, I will use this to fulfill my obligation ~ if that is ok? :)
So, here we are, book 2, The Incarnation, p. 123:
(here we find Our Blessed Lady begging the good God to guide Her in Her vocation as His chosen Mother, and His response to Her prayer)
The Almighty answered Her: "My Dove, do not fear, for I will assist thee and guide thee, directing thee in all things necessary for the service of my only-begotten Son." With this promise She came to Herself and issued from her ecstasy, in which all that I have said had happened, and which was the most wonderful She ever had. Restored to her faculties, her first action was to prostrate Herself on the earth and adore her holiest Son, God and Man, conceived in her virginal womb; for this she had not yet done with her external and bodily senses and faculties.
I cannot imagine what it must have been like for Her, the most lovely and loving of all of His creation...the Mother of God!!!
But how lucky are we, eh? ...to have Her for our own Mother as well...and I thank Him with all my heart for creating Her and giving Her to me, a most unworthy daughter.
I would like to tag the following Catholic Blogging Mothers:
