Mary and the Blood Moons
In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue...
and there were the four red moons,
or were there?
One person is certain...
Mary was there (a statue) on the Santa Maria
and she was prayed to every night.
The moon represents silver.
Since the moon receives
and is illuminated by the sun’s
golden rays it is considered feminine.
This partially explains how lunar gravity
regulates earthly reality relative to the tides
and woman’s fertility cycle.
In Orthodox Christian iconography
the moon represents Jesus Christ’s mother,
the Blessed Virgin Mary
who is depicted standing and/or
enthroned on a lunar crescent.
St. John the Evangelist’s revelation...
And a great sign appeared in heaven:
A woman clothed with the sun,
and the moon under her feet,
and on her head a crown of twelve stars:
The Church Fathers used the allegory,
moon-dew to explain the divine action
of grace that flows from God
in the sacramental life
of the believer.
The key is neither the lunar nor solar eclipse
but the state of one’s soul and our watchfulness...
And being with child,
she cried travailing in birth,
and was in pain to be delivered.

Get and stay prepared
because the dragon appears
in the next verse!
Sincerely yours in Jesus through Mary,
Become like Jesus
Live for the Triune God
Seek the Light of Our Lord Jesus Christ
See you on the High Ground!
