Te Deum Laudamus – Flowers for the Pope

[I was asked to share this announcement with the blog.]

"A Catholic couple, Raymond and Kathy Mylott, in the Traditional Latin Mass Community of New York recently came up with a unique initiative to express support and gratitude to the Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI, for the papal Motu Proprio, Summorum Pontificum. Other traditionalists agreed, and the project, Te Deum Laudamus – Flowers for the Pope, is underway. The idea is to send fresh bouquets of seasonal flowers (God’s own artistry) as a visual sign of Spiritual Bouquets of prayers and sacrifices for the intentions of the Pontiff. These bouquets are being sent to the Papal summer residence at Castel Gandolfo, on Lake Albano, just outside of Rome , where Pope Benedict will be staying for the next several weeks. Although bouquets may be sent using any florist service, an American company, From You Flowers, 1-800-838-8853 (Ext 115 during the week, ask for a supervisor on weekends or after hours) has agreed to special discounts and designed the text of a spiritual bouquet to be personalized by the sender. As the call goes out across the world, the organizers hope the momentum will continue, and that this collective message of love will become a powerful font of grace for the Holy Father, the Church, and the world.

If you have any further questions about this, do feel free to ask Kathy about them in the comments.
