REFLECTION – “Mary is the stem of the beautiful flower on which the Holy Spirit rests with the fullness of His gifts.   Hence, those who want to obtain the seven gifts of the Spirit must seek the flower of the Holy Spirit on the stem (Mary).
We go to Jesus through Mary and through Jesus we find the grace of the Holy Spirit.”…St Bonaventure (1217-1274) Seraphic Doctor

PRAYER – Heavenly Father, You made Mary the Spouse of the Holy Spirit.   Help me through Mary and Jesus to reach the Spirit and obtain His surpassing gifts.   Holy Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and Earth, be my companion and my guide. Amen
