Our Lady...of the Jersey Turnpike?

I just had to share this picture that I took last week at a rest stop on the New Jersey Turnpike.  A machine in the ladies room that dispenses your daily spiritual message from Our Lady of Guadalupe (along with your weight, of course).  Just when you think you've seen it all...

Eric Clapton and Pavarotti Sing to the Blessed Mother

Did you ever stumble upon something that you can't believe happened without you ever knowing about it?  This happened to me today when I found this video of Eric Clapton and Luciano Pavarotti singing a song to the Blessed Mother.  Not only were they singing, but Eric Clapton actually wrote the song! It seems that he was driven to his knees during a rehab stay while struggling to overcome his substance abuse.  Here are some of the lyrics:

Holy Mother, where are you?
Tonight I feel broken in two.
I've seen the stars fall from the sky.
Holy mother, can't keep from crying.


Oh I need your help this time,
Get me through this lonely night.
Tell me please which way to turn
To find myself again.


Holy mother, hear my prayer,
Somehow I know you're still there.
Send me please some peace of mind;
Take away this pain.

Here is "Holy Mother", as performed by Eric Clapton and Luciano Pavarotti:

Sacred Heart - Make My Heart Like Unto Thine O Lord

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, living and life giving fountain of eternal life,
Infinite treasure of the Divinity, and glowing furnace of love,
you are my sanctuary.

O adorable and glorious Savior consume my heart
with that burning fire that ever inflames your Heart.

Pour down on my soul those graces which flow from  your love.
Let my heart be one with, and in all things conformed to, yours.
May your will be the rule of both my desires and my actions.
Amen.

- St. Alphonsus Liguori
