And my Name Day!
Today is the Feast Day of my patron saint, Mary of Egypt. Over the years I’ve done a few blog posts about her, especially back in 2015. Rather than writing something new today, I’m going to share links to a couple of those posts. This icon is one I did for my husband on one of our wedding anniversaries, showing his patron saint, Basil the Great, along with mine.
“Not a Moral Project” (January 30, 2015)
Within that post is a link to Fr Stephen Freeman’s article: “St. Mary of Egypt and Moral Progress” (January 11, 2015)
National Poetry Month
Today is also the first day of National Poetry Month, so finally I will share a post that contains a poem I wrote back in 1997:
“Holy Mother Mary, Pray to God for Us” (March 27, 2015)
Blessed Name Day to all who share Mary of Egypt with me as a patron, and to all who love her and honor her.
