Some Answered Prayers

I have a growing collection of photographs of ex votos that I see here and there. I love ex votos and think that you should too.

Here are two ex voto plaques that I recently photographed. These are great because they are from more recent years, showing us how they are not just something from a bygone era: the Blessed Mother continues to answer the prayers of those who entrust themselves to her intercession.

First the photo, then my translation of the inscriptions:

Thanks to Mary for her protection
on my mission to Africa.
A priest – 2012 – M.P.

The [female law] student prayed to you,
the magistrate judge [now] thanks you.
M.T. 2011
