“An avid researcher in her writing, Ginny traveled the globe to document sacred gardens enshrined to the Blessed Virgin Mary, various Biblical medicinal and symbolic plants and flowers, and Madonnas, all of which inspired her successfully published books, Mary’s Flowers and Healing Plants of the Bible.”

Debts of Gratitude to Society of Mary

Blessed William Chaminade (JPII 2000), (1761-1850) French Roman Catholic priest who survived French Revolution/ All Marianists look to Mary, the mother of Jesus, as the model of discipleship. Very appropriate to reflect on Blessed Chaminade as we discuss Mary Gardens.

Chaminade legacy St. Mary’s Univ Law School, Central Catholic High School for my 4 sons, & Sodality with Fr. Gerard Haby 50+yrs ordained for several years.

 I had the tremendous pleasure and honor of attending Holy Mass with the brothers
