Ultimate Mother

Originally published as part of a collection for Everyday Ediths.

Twelve stars upon your head rests,
a diadem of the world.
Born clean without sin,
to bring forth a child foretold.

A necklace of wool in one hand,
beads of prayer in the other,
To your immaculate heart we pledge
and you, shall be called Mother.

Never reluctant or dismayed,
against the devil you did prevail.
A new covenant you brought forth,
your sweet name the angel did hail.

Love us like you love him,
Bring us closer to your son.
Carry to him our petitions
as we praise him with a song.

Oh Blessed Virgin Mary
as pure as fresh snow,
Oh Lady of Sweet Virtue
our love for you we show.

Oh most Holy Mother
honor we give to you,
As you stand in the Heavens
your feet upon the moon.

Oh Mother of Mercy,
pray for us this day
ask your Sacred Son
to show us the way.

With a yes you changed the world,
With a yes, His will was done
With a yes, The Word was conceived
With a yes, His kingdom has come.
-cal, 17
