A Virgin A Day ~ Twelve Days With Mary ~ Day 2

While walking this morning...
thinking about today's post,
this song from my youth
poured into my memory...


When I find myself in times of trouble
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
And in my hour of darkness
She is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

And when the broken hearted people
Living in the world agree
There will be an answer, let it be
For though they may be parted
There is still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Yeah there will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

Let it be, let it be
Ah let it be, yeah let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be
And when the night is cloudy
There is still a light that shines on me
Shine on until tomorrow, let it be
I wake up to the sound of music,
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
Yeah let it be, let it be
Let it be, yeah let it be
Oh there will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Let it be, yeah let it be
Oh there will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Ah let it be, yeah let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

-The Beatles 1970

This was all before I learned of the death later today
of one of my dearest blogging friends,
the beautiful Joe Spado,
also known as Spadoman.

I can hear you Joe...
you are smiling and laughing
and riding the wind...
Maggie and Gene,
the others who have gone before,
and the sacred mother of us all...
are welcoming you with open arms and hearts.
Thank you for gracing my life Joe,
for bringing me back into the sacred circle,
for sharing your beauty with us all.
God-speed my friend.

Come celebrate these twelve special days
of honoring the sacred mother,
of loving Lupita,
by visiting Rebecca and others
