One Minute Marian Reflection – 19 May “Mary’s Month” – Saturday of the Seventh Week of Eastertide
When the wine ran short, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.”…John 2:3
REFLECTION – “MARY: HER FAITH – “If our faith is weak, we should turn to Mary. St John tells us, that it was because of the miracle that Christ performed, at his mother ‘s request, at the marriage feast at Cana, that ‘his disciples learned to believe in him.’ Our Mother is always interceding with her Son, so that he may attend to our needs and show Himself to us, in such a way, that we can cry out, ‘You are the Son of God!'”...St Josemaría Escrivá (1902-1975) “Mother of God and Our Mother,” Friends of God, 285
Let us offer to our Mother today:
The “Memorare” for the person in our family who most needs the help of our Lady.
PRAYER – Almighty God and Father, Your ways are not our ways, teach us to willingly agree to them, for You know which way we should go. Help us to say “yes” always to Your plan and to render ourselves, as a sacrament of Your divine love to all we meet. Fill us with the grace to be your tools, to bring glory to Your kingdom. Our Father, who art in heaven, may Your Will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Mary Mother of God, pray for us! Through our Our Lord Jesus Christ with You, in the union of the Holy Spirit, one God forever, amen.
