~ Let It Be ... Mother Mary comes to me....


There will be an answer, let it be...

I looked for quite a while for a vintage Mary statue like this one. One that had just the right amount of age, a few chips here and there. One that reminded me of my childhood when you truly believe that prayers could be answered. One that would remind me that maybe they always are answered, even if it isn't the answer that we think we need or deserve.

I found her at Renninger's Extravaganza in Mt. Dora a couple of years ago. The dealers were very nice people and had picked her up in either France or Belgium. They were not sure. Now she lives with me. A long journey to a new heart waiting for her.


When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of Wisdom, let it be
And in my hour of darkness, she is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of Wisdom, let it be

Let it be, let it be, let it be , let it be
Whisper words of Wisdom, let it be

And when the broken hearted people, living in the world agree
There will be an answer, let it be
For though they may be parted, there is still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer, let it be

* Lyrics by Paul McCartney *
......................................................

I have always thought these words were inspired.
Not that I feel Paul McCartney is a saint.
But it gives Hope to all of us, who are not saints,
that we too can give the world
something that
is inspired.

See Y'all Soon

  3. what a lovely statue it reminds me of one that was in the church that I used to visit as a child..which is just a walk away to the park where the Beatles all met up to play for the very first time at a village fete and next to the churchyard where Eleanor Rigby is buried!..have you guessed I live in Liverpool!

  4. Hi Ladies~
    Thanks for stopping by and commenting on this wonderful statue.
    And Lorraine, thanks for adding to the story.
    I love that the statue just happens to be similar to the one near the church where Eleanor Rigby inspired one the best songs.

  7. This statue of Mary does remind me of one from my childhood also. I had one on my bureau as a child. Yes, it was a different world then.
    Blessings to you and your family.

  8. I love your statue.

    Paul McCartney's mother's name was Mary. I think she died when he was young.

  9. Dear Sweet Donna,

  11. Yes, I love your statue. It's interesting to me how many people (who are not particularly into venerating saints) are interested in some way in the Virgin Mary. I'm definitely not a "Blessed Virgin" type, and yet I'm fascinated with the black madonnas, have been for several years now. I think there's some kind of "feminine" energy coming into or awakening in the church, and I think it's a very good thing!
