One Minute Marian Reflection – 23 May “Mary’s Month” Wednesday in the 7th Week of Ordinary Time Year B
When the time for Pentecost was fulfilled, they were all in one place together...Acts 2:1
REFLECTION – “MARY: QUEEN OF THE APOSTLES – “If we take our Lady’s hand, she will make us realise more fully that all men are our brothers – because we are all sons of that God, whose daughter, spouse and mother she is. Our neighbours’ problems must be our problems. Christian fraternity should be something very deep in the soul, so that we are indifferent to no one. Mary, who brought up Jesus and accompanied Him through His life and is now beside Him in heaven, will help us recognise Jesus as He crosses our path and makes Himself present to us, in the needs of others.”… St Josemaría Escrivá (1902-1975) “To Jesus through Mary,” Christ is Passing By- 145.
Let us offer to our Mother today:
A kind word, a friendly conversation, a helping hand to persons with whom we live or work.
PRAYER – Almighty God, we offer our thanks for the great gift of the Mother of Your Divine Son, for as she was a Mother to His apostles, so still is she a Mother to us all. Grant we pray, that by her intercession, we may learn to recognise Jesus in all our neighbours and serve them as we would Him. Through Christ our Lord, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God forever, amen.
