Our Lady of the Woods

The Blessed Mother is the patroness of the United States and each state has its own representation of her. As I head out on vacation to Oregon this week, I would like to recognize Our Lady of the Woods, its patron saint. Mary's birth is celebrated on Sept. 8 and her death on the Assumption (Aug. 15).
"Hail, holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, Our life, our sweetness and our hope."
