Mary Vitamin for April 5th


Topic: Holy Thursday
Quote:
St. Alphonsus
St. Bonaventure, contemplating Mary on that night [the night before Good Friday], says: "Thou didst spend it without sleep, and whilst others slept thou didst remain watching."
St. Alphonsus di Liguori, The Glories of Mary, (Tan Books), 439.



Meditation:
St. Bonaventure continues:
In the morning the disciples of Jesus Christ came to this afflicted mother, the one to bring her one account, the other another; but all were tidings of sorrow verifying in her the prophecy of Jeremias:
"Weeping, she hath wept in the night and her tears are on her cheeks; there is none to comfort her of all them that were dear to her."
St. Alphonsus di Liguori, The Glories of Mary, (Tan Books), 439



Resolution:
One attempt at virtue, for Our Lady's sake, will bring Her relief in Her sufferings and comfort to Her sorrowing Heart.



Marian Vow:
If I live out my vow, always endeavoring to give myself as a docile instrument to the Blessed Virgin Mary, I will give Our Lady comfort in Her sorrow. If I explain and give the Immaculate to others, I bring Her more companions during Her grief.



I give this resolution to the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Thanks be to God for graces received.
