“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – John 2:5

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

His mother said to the servants,

“Do whatever He tells you.”

.

– John 2:5 (NRSV)

.

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

Our Lady’s words to the servants, during the wedding feast at Cana,

describe the heart of her message to all believers across time.

.

Our Blessed Mother’s message is increasingly urgent and clear

– it is a call to prayer, penance and conversion of hearts,

and it always centers around loving Jesus,

being more like Him,

and doing what He tells us to do

…in the manner in which He wishes us to do it.

QUOTES…

.

"In that all Christian holiness consists:

for perfect holiness is obeying Christ in all things."

.

– St. Thomas Aquinas

.

.

Sweet Mother of God

"we listen with particular attention to your words:

"Do whatever my Son tells you".

And we wish to respond to your words with all our heart.

.

We wish to do what your Son tells us,

what He commands us,

for He has the words of eternal life.

.

We wish to carry out and fulfill all that comes from Him,

all that is contained in the Good News,

as our forefathers did for many centuries. […]

.

We entrust and consecrate to you,

Mother of Christ and Mother of the Church,

our hearts, our consciences, and our works,

in order that they may be in keeping with the faith we profess.”

.

– John Paul II

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

Pray for me, O Sweet Mother of Mercy,

that I may always listen to Jesus and do whatever He tells me.
