The birdsnatcher has taken advantage of your inexperience,
but I am the Poor Dove and I will rescue you.
Oh, when will I go, when will I fly to the bosom of my God?
I watch over their weakness.
I bring them out of the darkness of ignorance
into the light of faith.
Here is the Lord who calls to you.
Return to him, you who have forgotten his voice.
Bouasse Lebel 460

God sees to the needs of the weak.
Virgin full of kindness, pray for us.
O, Mary, through your holy heart, burning with divine love
console a poor mother and protect her frail children.
PRAYER OF QUIETUDE
The Soul Alone with God
My Divine Master, whether I run or rest,
I am all to You, and You are all to me.
O divine Heart of Jesus, your memory is my delight;
I hunger and thirst for your love.
Nest of the Dove
I will retire into solitude and there I will listen to what the Lord tells me.
God watches over the lilies
and the birds.
He watches over you.
You lived by the work of your hands.
A. Jourdain, Paris

be ever the protector
of souls who are dear to me.
FAITH AND CONFIDENCE IN MARY
Mary, my tender Mother, it is to you that I entrust them as their support and guide.
The Heart of Jesus watches over the orphans. Turgis, Paris pl. 107

roses & lilies, add visual poetry
