Our Lady of the Assumption

Flowers offered to Mary.

A young apprentice from a big city, son of a poor worker, seeing his mother sad and discouraged by the total lack of work, said to her one evening in April: “My mother, have confidence; let us pray together to the Blessed Virgin, She will come to our aid. The gentleman who is visiting us has told me so.” The poor woman followed her child’s advice; a few days later she had plenty of work. As the month of May drew to a close, the apprentice said to his mother, “Mother, we have not thanked the Blessed Virgin for helping us; come to the church, we will hear mass there, and then we will offer a little souvenir to our Protectress.” The worker obediently followed her child, who, crossing the flower market with her, bought two pretty rosebushes there, paid for them and ran to place them at the altar of the Blessed Virgin. The child explained to his surprised mother that, from the day the work was returned, he had resolved to give Mary a token of his gratitude. Every morning at the workshop, he received two pennies to buy lunch. He had eaten dry bread for the whole month, and with the three francs he had saved he had bought the two rosebushes he was grateful for.
