Ramblings from us as we strive to live a holy life in the world, not of the world.

Our Lady of La Leche

I believe it was when I was nursing my fifth child five years ago that a friend gave me a holy card of Our Lady of La Leche from the shrine of the same name in St. Augustine, FL from which she had just returned. Admittedly I never heard of it, but it was a beautiful image and something that I could definitely relate to.

Since that time I have held that holy card in a devotional book that I've picked up from time to time.

I'm recounting this because St. Peter's List has a post of twenty images of Mary nursing the baby Jesus (well actually 19 as the last one is a painting of St. Bernard with a statue of Mary that 'came to life'). The post certainly affirms the maternal of our Blessed Mother.
