POPPIES

The fervent red poppy.

The  poppies associated with this Memorial Day weekend honor those who have died in war to preserve our country.   The poppies we give to Our Lady are associated with Fervor for Souls, which resided in her heart.

It’s only logical.

The Creator of mankind was not only angry and offended when the first humans (and all their offspring)  rejected Him,  He was also greatly grieved.     “Grieved” is sorrowed.    So the Creator Himself becomes the Savior of His creation,  which, as you know,  involved the Incarnation  and   Mary,  the Mother of the Savior.

With what grief she saw her Son crucified!   Therefore,  with what Fervor she would want that death to be for good effect for all mankind!

“For there is no other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved.”

That’s the Good News that Mary  fervently wants everyone to know, the Name of her Son Jesus..

“For there is no other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved.”

That’s the Good News that men  and women have carried into the mission fields — to tell all about the Name of Jesus, even at the risk of their own lives.

“For there is no other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved.”

That could be the cause of our fervency,  our fervency for souls.
