Mary is the "Perfect Prayer"

Mary is the "Perfect Prayer"

What’s in a name? Or rather, what’s in a logo? Prayerful Catholic was inspired by our Blessed Mother as the perfect prayer (CCC 2679). Our logo’s emblem, the Fleur de Lis or ‘flower of the lily,’ depicts a special connection to her as it is often used by the Roman Catholic church in association with both the Virgin Mary and St. Joseph to depict purity.

In the Middle Ages the lily and the Fluer de Lis overlapped considerably in religious art. Michel Pastoureau, a French historian, says that until about 1300 they were found in depictions of Jesus, but gradually they took on Marian symbolism and were associated with the Song of Solomon’s “lily among thorns,” understood as a reference to Mary. Other scripture and religious literature in which the lily symbolizes purity and chastity also helped establish the flower as an iconographic attribute of the Virgin.

The three petals of the heraldic design also reflect a widespread association with the Holy Trinity, with the band on the bottom symbolizing Mary. The tradition says that without Mary you can not understand the Trinity since it was she who bore The Son, a tradition going back to 14th century France, added onto the earlier belief that they also represented faith, wisdom and chivalry.

The lily is yet another representation of beauty + meaning in connection to prayer.
