Statue of Our Lady of the Rosary in the parish church of Aljustrel, near Fatima, where the three visionaries, St Jacinta, St Francisco, and Lucia were baptised. Sr Lucia dos Santos made her first confession here when she was 6 years old, and she recalls going to pray in front of this statue, and she asked Our Lady to keep her heart for God alone. And then she said this statue seemed to smile at her in confrmation of her request. I share this image today because it is Mothering Sunday, or Laetare Sunday when rose vestments are used in church. May Our Most Blessed Mother smile upon us, and may we give our hearts to God; we entrust our own beloved mothers to Him.
