Don’t turn down a present from God. It’ll involve a bit of suffering, but the end results are magnificent. Mary, a quiet girl in Galilee, accepted, and is now Queen of Heaven and Earth, and did you ever see her basilica in Washington, D.C.? It’s called the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.
The interior has the front wall devoted to a mosaic of her son, Jesus, from the breast up. The whole church is a work of art.
Heaven is a gift, too, and I can’t imagine what a joy it will be. The saying is, “Keep trucking,” but I say, “Keep praying.”
