"As a little girl in nursery school, I have the vivid memory of my teacher asking our class to bring flowers to the Virgin Mary each Friday. The chapel had a beautiful royal blue carpet that made it easier for us to kneel in prayer in front of the image of the Immaculate Conception, and the scent of flowers filled the room – it was a kind of indoor garden for Mary.
