One Minute Marian Reflection 11 May – “Mary’s Month!” – Friday of the Sixth Week of Eastertide
Having listened to what the king had to say, they set out. And suddenly the star they had seen rising went forward and halted over the place where the child was…Matthew 2:9
REFLECTION – “MARY: WELCOMING THE MAGI: “‘Going into the house, they saw the child with Mary, his mother.’ Our Lady is always near her Son. The Magi are not received by a king on a high throne but by a child in the arms of His mother. Let us ask the Mother of God, who is our mother, to prepare for us the way that leads to the fullness of love …. Her sweet heart knows the surest path for finding Christ.” …St Josemaria Escrivá (1902-1975) “The Epiphany of Our Lord,” Christ is Passing By, 38.
Let us offer to our Mother today:
A visit to a poor person to communicate
our Lady‘s concern for that person.
PRAYER – Heavenly Father, Your plans are always the Truth. So in Your wisdom, You gave us Mary as our Mother, to help us home to You. Grant that by her prayers we finally arrive with You in Your eternal Kingdom. Through Jesus our Lord, in union with the Holy Spirit, one God forever, amen.
