THE FIVE HOLY WOUNDS

PONDER

1. Attachment to earthly things is a great hindrance
to union with God. Endeavor to detach thy heart
from all creatures and transitory objects.

2. This detachment from all creatures does not consist
therein that one hate them, because everything
which God created is good; but it consists therein,
as the Apostle says, “to possess them, as though
one did not possess them” (I Cor. vii. 30).

PRAY

O good Mother Mary, help me to subject myself
entirely to God, willingly to give Him all that I am
and have, and being detached from all temporal
things for love of Him, to strive for the perpetual
possession of the highest good. Amen.
Let us pray that through our Blessed Mother we
may obtain the grace of detachment from creatures.

PRACTICE

Visit some sick person, in honor of Mary.
To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve!
