LENT WITH OUR LADY


MONDAY IN HOLY WEEK

PONDER

As the time of the Passion drew near, Mary’s realization
of the approaching sufferings of her Son became
more vivid. The sword of Simeon pierced her
heart as it had never done before. How could she
endure to see her Son and her God outraged and illtreated,
insulted and put to death? “Weeping, she
wept in the night: there were none to comfort her
among all those that were dear to her” (Lament. i.
2).

PRAY

I grieve for thee, O Mary most sorrowful, in the
affliction of thy tender heart at the prophecy of the
holy and aged Simeon. Dear Mother, by thy heart
so afflicted, obtain for me the virtue of humility and
the gift of the holy fear of God.

PRACTICE

Ask the blessed Mother of God to help you to become
holy and to die a happy death. Adore God
only, and love Him perfectly; look upon life as a
preparation for death. Cultivate a childlike confidence
in Mary. And for her sake help those who
suffer.
