5 Commonplace sights to remind you of Our Lady this May (Aleteia)
"I didn’t know my husband for long when we started dating.

I remember I was working at a greenhouse, watering rows of flowers, and shot him a text: “I just watered a huge bumblebee! Don’t think it’s happy with me.”

He responded, “Did you know that bumblebees are a symbol of Our Lady? St Anthony of Padua uses that image!”

I’d like to say that’s when I realized I was going to marry him. It wasn’t, quite, but it sure got my attention. Since then, I always think of Our Lady when I see a bumblebee, and I’ve discovered a handful of other commonplace sights that, for centuries, have reminded people of her too. She’s all around us, it seems."
