TODAY’S WORD…

.

“Of all women you are the most blessed,

and blessed is the fruit of your womb.”

.

– Luke 1:42 (JB)

REFLECTION…

.

Elizabeth was truly led by the Spirit

when she greeted her cousin Mary with these words.

.

That Spirit is the same One who fills us with trusting filial love

when we call upon our Heavenly Mother.

.

Like children would approach their doting earthly mother,

we go before the Mother of God filled with tender and loving devotion.

We know that she hears our prayers

and that she quickly intercedes for us before Christ and the Father.

.

We know that, from His Cross of loving sacrifice,

Christ gave us His mother to be ours.

.

We know

that she so loves us!

.

.

.

QUOTE…

.

“Mary is a model for each of us,

and her Assumption into heaven reminds us that there is hope for you and me.

What happens to the Virgin daughter of Nazareth at the end of her earthly pilgrimage

will happen to each of us

if we are faithful and obedient as she was.”

.

– Father Thomas Rosica, CSB

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary!

Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God,

that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
