LENT WITH OUR LADY
WEDNESDAY IN PASSION WEEK
It would not have sufficed, in order to bring out and impress on us the idea that God is man, had His Mother been an ordinary person…. She must be made to fill the mind in order to suggest the lesson. When she once attracts our attention, then, and not till then, she begins to preach Jesus. She is exalted in herself that she may minister to Christ.
I grieve for thee, O Mary most sorrowful, in the consternation of thy heart at meeting Jesus as He carried His Cross. Dear Mother, by thy heart so troubled, obtain for me the virtue of patience and the gift of fortitude.
Place a votive light before “The Pieta” and pray for the conversion of sinners.
O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee. 300 days
