Love the tangible connection (noue) these pearly textiles make to liturgical vestments made by lacemaker Blessed Azélie-Marie "Zélie" Martin née Guérin. Lacey appliques in students prayer journals may deepen the sacramental meme of Mary's fiat untying Eve's knot during Holy Baptism, as in "Who can find* a woman of worth? Far beyond pearls is her value... she puts her hands to the distaff, and her fingers ply the spindle* | Proverbs 31:10, 19 http://www.usccb.org/bible/proverbs/31#24031019-1
Luke 2:15 So when the angels had departed from them into heaven, the shepherds began saying to one another: “Let us by all means go over to Beth′le·hem and see what has taken place, which Jehovah has made known to us.” 16 And they went quickly and found Mary as well as Joseph, and the infant lying in the manger. 18 And all who heard were astonished at what the shepherds told them, 19 but Mary began to preserve all these sayings, drawing conclusions in her heart.
