How dark without Mary life’s journey would be! Thank you for your Fiat that forever changed the world and made heaven possible for all mankind. As we meditate upon the mysteries of the most Holy Rosary this month, please help us realize the nothingness of this world, the greatness of heaven, the shortness of time, and the length of eternity. Holy Mary, cause of our joy, pray for us!
Mother of Perpetual Help, Jesus ran to you as a child for comfort and reassurance. You did not see him as only a fragile child but as the Son of the Most High, the long-awaited Messiah. Following your example of faith, help us recognize Jesus in those we meet, especially the poor and the lonely, the sick and the elderly. Keep us always mindful, dear Mother, that whatever we do to the least of our brothers and sisters, we do to your loving Son. Mary, Mother of Jesus, pray for us.
