Our Lady of Good Counsel



This is the cover of a notecard showing my daughter Anastasia (almost 16) and Edmund aged 2 years posing as Our Lady of Good Counsel and the infant Jesus. The notecards come with envelopes and benefit the Traditional Catholic school they attend, Immaculate Heart of Mary in Still River, MA. The side of the card says:

Hail bright star of ocean,
God's own Mother blest,
Ever sinless Virgin,
gate of heavenly rest...
Taking that sweet Ave,
which from Gabriel came,
Peace confirm within us,
changing Eva's name.
Break the captive's fetters,
light on blindness pour,
All our ills expelling,
every bliss implore.
Show thyself a Mother;
may the Word Divine,
Born for us thine Infant,
hear our prayers through thine.

What a beautiful front for the card! Anastasia must be a strong Blessed Mother with such a beautiful BIG baby to carry around. But, she doesn't seem to mind it at all! You must be proud!

So, how do we get to purchase some of these cards? These should raise much money for that wonderful thoroughly Catholic school.
