Crunch Time

Tempus fugit and all that... or, "Isn't time fun when you're having flies?" as one frog said to the other!

Anyway, Lent is marching relentlessly on, and so the time of the annual Chrism Mass demo approaches... Before I get roasted in the combox by anyone unfamiliar with my blog, I hasten to point out that the "demo" to which I refer is actually a group of women who stand outside St. George's Cathedral, Southwark, saying "thank you" to our hard-working and faithful priests. We also hand out little cards...

...and I'm having trouble deciding on the picture for this year's offering. So, shall I use this one:


Or what about this one?


Preferences (or other suggestions) in the combox please.

UPDATE: Stephen Wikner suggested the following as an alternative...

Being unfamiliar with the demo, it might help to know what the little cards say?

Aesthetically I prefer no 1 but there is, for me, a stronger message in no 2. If you want Our Lady as panagia (all holy), I have a wonderful picture of a mosaic which I use a lot. You can access it at www.smart.net/~tak/Disputations/panagia5.jpg

I've not seen this particular picture available commercially as a prayer card but these days it's not difficult to get such things run off quite inexpensively.

Mark, I change the text each year... last year's text was a snippet from the writings of Cardinal Ratzinger
which you can see here

Stephen I do the cards myself, so I just need a good image to use... I shall have a look at the one you suggest, thanks!

I like the first one.

Mark said...

Artistically I prefer no 1, but for the message no 2 is better.

number 1 i reckon, the women priest ppl have a tendency of hijackinig the one stephen suggests and distorting it...

Now that is too weird. Tempus Fugit is the title of my latest post.

What? Eh? Were we separated at birth?

I prefer the third one as I have not seen that picture before.

WOW! The first one. Dunno what it's for, but it makes me think Our Lady is saying "remember: in the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph".

(Hurray for Our Lady of Fatima!!!!)
