THE front door is typically painted blue in all the foundations of Madonna House which Catherine Doherty founded. This is because of an ancient saying of Catherine’s people that every front door painted blue in honor of Our Lady brings her blessings on all who pass through it, as well as her divine Son’s grace and mercy.
So also should the doors of our hearts be painted blue. That those whom we open to and share our lives and our hearts with would also receive this blessing and this grace which we have encountered.
There are many ways of thanking the Lord for His infinite gifts to us. And it seemed to us that one of our ways should be by sharing our life journey and our stories about true happenings of God’s love and mercy in our lives; in the life of our family.
Madonna House has been a part of our formation as a family since we started gathering with the Holy Family Apostolate, in 2008, and so we hold their Little Mandate and their spirit close to our hearts and seek to live it out with our lives.
