One Minute Marian Reflection – 5 May “Mary’s Month!” – Saturday of the Fifth Week of Eastertide
Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favour with God…Luke 1:30
REFLECTION – “MARY: HER IMMACULATE CONCEPTION: “How would we have acted, if we could have chosen our own mother? I’m sure we would have chosen the one we have, adorning her with every possible grace. That is what Christ did. Christ being all powerful, all wise, Love itself, His power carried out His will. . . . This is the clearest reason why our Lord granted His mother , from the very moment of her Immaculate Conception, all possible privileges. She was free from the power of Satan. She is beautiful, spotless and pure in soul and body.” …St Josemaría Escrivá (1902-1975) – “Cause of our Joy” – Christ is Passing By – 171
Let us offer to our Mother today:
The renewal of our baptismal vows.
PRAYER – Almighty God, grant that Your faithful, who rejoice in the protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary, may be delivered from every evil here on earth, through her prayer and come to the enduring joys of heaven. We make our prayer through her Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, one God with You, in the union of the Holy Spirit, forever amen.
