Thought for the Day – 7 July – The Memorial of Blessed Maria Romero Meneses F.M.A. (1902-1977)

Sister María Romero Meneses, Daughter of Mary Help of Christians, knew how to reflect the Face of Christ which He made her recognise in the sharing of the bread.   Born in Nicaragua, she received her religious formation in El Salvador and passed the greatest part of her life in Costa Rica.   Those beloved Central American peoples, united in the joy of her beatification, can find in the new Blessed who loved them so much, an abundance of example and teaching to renew and confirm their Christian life, deeply rooted in their countries.

With a passionate love for God and an unlimited confidence in the assistance of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Sr María Romero was an exemplary religious, apostle and mother of the poor people, who were her real favourites.   May her memory be a blessing for all and may the works she founded, among which the “House of the Virgin” in San José, continue in fidelity to the ideal that led to their being started….Beatification Homily, St Pope John Paul – Sunday 14 April 2002

May we all too reflect the Face of Christ and trust in our Holy Mother Mary, amen!
