Ecce Homo (Detail), 1871
Antonio Ciseri (Italian, 1821 – 1891)
"It was almost 3 o’clock, the most stagnant hour in the day or night."
There’s something symbolic about Thursday night being put out the garbage night. End of the week, put all the unnecessary and unwanted behind. The end of the week brings renewed hope and it all starts with pushing a can out by the curb. Thursday night. I just need to make it a little bit farther.
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession, was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, we fly unto thee, O Virgin of Virgins my Mother; to thee do we come; before thee do we stand, sinful and sorrowful; O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not our petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer us. Amen
