Quote/s of the Day – September, the Month of Our Lady of Sorrows
“When she was asked to become the mother of the Messiah,
Mary’s faith enabled her to give a humble and generous response….
Mary’s faith was frequently tested during the public life of Jesus,
especially when she witnessed the rejection of her son.
At the foot of the cross, her pilgrimage of faith had its moment
of most severe testing. Mary continued to believe that,
because Jesus was the Son of God,
His sacrifice would bring salvation to humanity.”
“From Mary we learn to surrender to God’s Will in all things.
From Mary we learn to trust even when all hope seems gone.
From Mary we learn to love Christ her Son and the Son of God!”
St Pope John Paul
“From the nature of His work, the Redeemer
ought to have associated His Mother with His work.
For this reason we invoke her under the title of
Co-redemptrix. She gave us the Saviour,
she accompanied Him in the work of redemption,
as far as the Cross itself, sharing with Him the
sorrows of the agony and of the death in which
Jesus consummated the redemption of mankind.”
