One Minute Marian Reflection – 12 May “Mary’s Month!” – Saturday of the Sixth Week of Eastertide
…he has looked on his servant in her lowliness…Luke 1:48
REFLECTION – MARY: HE HAS LOOKED ON HIS SERVANT IN HER LOWLINESS : “The mystery of Mary helps us to see that in order to approach God, we must become little. Christ said to his disciples: ‘Believe me, unless you become like little children again, you shall not enter the kingdom of heaven.’ To become children, we must renounce our pride and self-sufficiency, recognising that we can do nothing by ourselves. We must realise that we need grace and the help of God our Father to find our way and keep to it.” … St Josemaría Escrivá (1902-1975) “To Jesus through Mary” Christ is Passing By, 143.
Let us offer to our Mother today:
A visit to a lonely person to share the joy of trusting in God alone.
PRAYER – Grant us, Lord, we pray, that through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may become like little children, trusting in You, our Father, following Your Son and finally arriving safely home with by the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Mary, Immaculata pray for us. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, in union with the Holy Spirit, one God forever, amen.
