This image has a magical story that goes with it. I live in a small mountain town not much is here excect a few second-hand stores. I walked into a second hand store a few months ago and I saw a lovely statue of the Madonna. I picked her up and she had the number 300 which I assumed it was $300 because she was Hummel Figurine. So I carefully put her back on the shelf and moved on. A month went by I was making my rounds to the second hands stores and again I saw the Madonna. She seem to be calling me, so I picked her up and asked what her prices was. The store keeper look at her handed her back to me and said $3.00, so I took out my money and bought her right on the spot.
This statue has a child like innocence and trust. When I returned home I googled this particular Hummel and to my surprise they were being sold up to $400 as a limited edition. But what was even more profound was she was called “Our Lady of Supreme Protection.
We all have had points in our lives when we have the need for protection. Life can be vicarious. Over the last few years I have been lighting candles with friends on-line. It began when I lived in France carrying prayers for Facebook friends to Notre Dame in Paris. But over the last 7 years it has grown into astonishing group of people. When a problem arises, or someone dies or falls sick I call on my on-line candle lighters. And I have seen so many positive results. My friends have given their strength and the support through these small acts of kindness. The many Stars Mantle of Our Lady of Supreme Protection is this group of people who have held space and light for strangers, for each other and for myself. Our Lady of Supreme protection gives one the strength in life’s storms.
