One Minute Reflection – 29 May “Mary’s Month!”
“And a great portent appeared in heaven, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and on her head a crown of twelve stars”…Revelations 12:1
REFLECTION – “MARY: THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN – “She lives now and is protecting us. She is there [in heaven], body and soul, with the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. She is the same person who was born in Palestine, who gave herself to God while still a child, who received the message from St Gabriel the Archangel, who gave birth to our Saviour and who stood beside Him at the foot of the Cross. In her, all ideals become a reality. But we should never think that this sublime greatness of hers, makes her inaccessible to us. She is the one, who is full of grace and the sum of all perfections . . . and she is also our Mother!”…St Josemaría Escrivá (1902-1975) “Mother of God and our Mother,” Friends of God, 292
Let us offer to our Mother today:
The “Hail Holy Queen” at each hour.
PRAYER – O God, Who by the Resurrection of Thy Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, hast been pleased to give joy to the whole world, grant we beseech Thee, that through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, His Mother, we may attain the joys of eternal life. Our Lady, Queen of Heaven and Mother of us all, pray for us! Through the same Christ, our Lord. Amen.
