On this great Marian feast day, we rededicate The Feminine Gift to the great mother of God, Mary most holy, who was taken up to heaven, body and soul.  As we strive to imitate her in this life, may we one day stand with her in the Presence of God, our Lord and King.

The Assumption of Mary by Domenico Piola

Come, let us adore the King of kings! This day His virgin Mother was taken up to heaven. The angels rejoice; they bless the lord and sing His praises.

Virgin most prudent, where are you going like the rosy dawn? Daughter of Zion, you are all fair and loveable; beautiful as the moon, bright as the sun.
Hear, O Daughter, and see, and incline your ear, for the King has greatly desired your beauty.
Hail Mary....

You are blessed by the Lord, O Mary, for through you we have shared in the fruit of life. Because of you, the gates of heaven were opened to us, You who this day reign gloriously with the angels! Behold, you are raised above the choirs of angels! Intercede for us with the Lord our God.
Turn to us in your beauty and loveliness.
Come forth in majesty and reign! 
Hail Mary...

You are the gate of heaven and the Morning Star, Virgin Mary,
Mother of the Eternal King, and our Queen! Make us pleasing to your Son, for all virtue, honour, and glory shines forth from you.
O Holy Mother of God, we fly to your patronage.
Our Mother, Our Queen, take us as your own!
Hail Mary...

LET US PRAY: Almighty and everlasting God, who have taken the Immaculate Virgin Mary, the Mother of your Son, with body and soul into heavenly glory, grant that intent on higher things, we may always deserve to be parkers of her glory. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, you Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. AMEN

Salve Regina

What is a woman? What does it mean to be feminine? There is softness and hardness, compassion and ferocity. There is contentment and adventure, freedom and service. We're conundrums, especially to ourselves, but we all, in some way, possess beauty, creativity, intuition and love. We were made for love, and we are loved, cellulite and all. Here we aim to show every woman the richness and beauty of her own femininity and explore current issues relating to women in our world. We also wish to share our own experiences - exploring the joys and challenges of stay-at-home moms and single professionals and everyone in between. Welcome! So glad you're here!
