One quote, six images, endless food for thought by Ginny Moyer

Over the years, I’ve come across several great quotations about Mary.  I have to say,  this is one of the best.  If you have the time, read it slowly, and try meditating on each phrase.    I’ve thrown in a few pictures, too, just for all of us visual learners (I may be on summer vacation, but I’m still a teacher).

Enjoy!
