Thought for the Day – 18 October – Meditations with Antonio Cardinal Bacci (1881-1971)
“Month of the Holy Rosary”
The Fifth Glorious Mystery
The Crowning of the Blessed Virgin Mary
as Queen of Heaven and Earth
“Mary’s reign extends even to the powers of hell, which were vanquished through her instrumentality as Mother of God.
We should not lose courage when the devil tries to trap us into sinning.
Instead, we should ask Mary, humbly and perseveringly, to save us.
Besides praying to her, however, let us take care to imitate her virtues.
We must endeavour to become more like Mary if we wish her to regard us as her children and to take us under her maternal protection.”
Antonio Cardinal Bacci
