Topic: St. Peter and the Blessed Virgin Mary
Acts of the Apostles 5:15-16
Thus they even carried the sick out into the streets and laid them on cots and mats so that when Peter came by, at least his shadow might fall on one or another of them. A large number of people from the towns in the vicinity of Jerusalem also gathered, bringing the sick and those disturbed by unclean spirits, and they were all cured.
St. Alphonsus di Liguori
Saint Basil of Seleucia remarks, "that if God granted to some who were only His servants such power, that not only their touch but even their shadows healed the sick, who were placed for this purpose in the public streets, how much greater power must we suppose that He has granted to her, who was not only His handmaid but His Mother?"
St. Alphonsus di Liguori, The Glories of Mary, (Tan Books), 95-96
Today, I will pray that my loved ones may have Our Lady's shadow fall upon them and heal them.
Is not one with the Marian Vow, constantly living in the shadow of Our Lady? I will remember my vow, and ask to be transubstantiated into the Immaculate.
I give this resolution to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Thanks be to God for graces received.
