Wisdom 7:7-14 Therefore I prayed, and understanding was given me; I called on God, and the spirit of wisdom came to me. I preferred her to scepters and thrones, and I accounted wealth as nothing in comparison with her. Neither did I liken to her any priceless gem, because all gold is but a little sand in her sight, and silver will be accounted as clay before her. I loved her more than health and beauty, and I chose to have her rather than light, because her radiance never ceases.
Know someone in need of prayer? Tell them. I have an agnostic friend who I tell I am praying for when she's having a hard day. She knows what I believe and she knows I don't believe in "good vibes" or "good thoughts" as the same as prayer. And you know what? Despite our very polar opposite views on abortion, she knows I will stop to pray for her when she needs me. Be that for someone in your life and don't worry about offending them. Be #Catholic unapologetically. #Pray. ~ Martina ❤️
Love the tangible connection (noue) these pearly textiles make to liturgical vestments made by lacemaker Blessed Azélie-Marie "Zélie" Martin née Guérin. Lacey appliques in students prayer journals may deepen the sacramental meme of Mary's fiat untying Eve's knot during Holy Baptism, as in "Who can find* a woman of worth? Far beyond pearls is her value... she puts her hands to the distaff, and her fingers ply the spindle* | Proverbs 31:10, 19 http://www.usccb.org/bible/proverbs/31#24031019-1
