Our Mother Who Art
​On the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe a prayer is uttered ….for those of us of a more Protestant mind which sees engagement with the Blessed Virgin as a corrective to an overly patriarchal God it seems to me one we can adopt and address to God as Mother. You are the mother of the dark and the light the rich and the poor the humble and proud. You are the mother of the young and the old the strong and the weak of those who rejoice of those who weep. You are the mother of woman and man of small and of great of broken and whole. You are the mother who art.
