“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Luke 1:42

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

“Of all women you are the most blessed,

and blessed is the fruit of your womb.”

.

– Luke 1:42

.

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

What a loving Mother Jesus gave us!

.

How could we fail to love the one whom our Lord loved so much?

It is impossible to love Christ adequately

without also loving the Mother who gave Him to us.

.

If we choose to ignore her we may end up ignoring Him

– for the two are inseparable in the great drama of redemption.

.

.

[inspired by the Venerable Fulton Sheen’s reflection on The Glorious Assumption]

.

QUOTE…

.

“Taken up into heaven,

Mary shows us the way to God,

the way to heaven, the way to life.

She shows it to her children baptised in Christ

and to all people of good will.

She opens this way especially to the little ones and to the poor,

those who are dear to divine mercy.

.

The Queen of the world reveals to individuals and to nations the power of the love of God

whose plan upsets that of the proud,

pulls down the mighty from their thrones and exalts the humble,

fills the hungry with good things and sends the rich empty away”

.

– St. Pope John Paul II

.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness and our hope.

To you do we cry, poor banished children of Eve:

to you do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears.

Turn then, most gracious Advocate, your eyes of mercy toward us,

and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of your womb, Jesus.

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.

    We are really happy and fortunate that on the 15th August, here in Malta and Gozo, we celebrate a most Beautiful Feast of The Assumption Into Heaven of The Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of Our Lord Jesus who graciously gave Her also to us as Our Mother. We thank You Dear God and we also give thanks to The Blessed Virgin Mother Mary for their Great Love towards us. Here at Hamrun we had a Great Celebration at The Tas-Samra Sanctuary in Honour of Our Lady of Atocia and The Assumption of The Blessed Virgin Mother of God, really Devotional and surely many Blessings from Our Lady and from Her Son Jesus as in the Sanctuary we had ADORATION during the Day and The Concelebration of The Holy Mass with Beautiful Choir Singing Praises to The Virgin Mother Of Our Lord Jesus.In the evening during the Procession we recited The Holy Rosary and sang Hymns. Our Lord Jesus and His Mother Mary really deserve to be praised and to be given Great Thanks. Dear God and Mother Mary, we also give You Thanks for the Organisers and Celebrants of This Most Beautiful and Devotional Feast.
