Thought for the Day – 16 October – Meditations with Antonio Cardinal Bacci (1881-1971)
“Month of the Holy Rosary”
The Third Glorious Mystery
The Descent of the Holy Spirit
“Because of our weakness, we should seek the intercession of Mary and, like the Apostles, pesevere in prayer, with her.
Our prayers, however, should be more supernatural.
There is nothing to prevent us asking our good Mother to look after our temporal needs, such as our health, our business and our attachments.
The first miracle which Mary wrung from the Heart of Jesus, was at the wedding feast at Cana.
Nevertheless, we should not be too materialistic.
We should seek, first of all, from the Holy Spirit through Mary’s intercession, the greater glory of God and the eternal salvation of ourselves and of all our brethren in Jesus Christ.”
Antonio Cardinal Bacci
