Let us make ourselves very small

Let us make ourselves very small

Let us make ourselves very, very small in the arms of our beloved Mother. Let us remain very close to her... She will tell us that our duty, our sole Christian duty is to be like Jesus, and that there is still, in every time and place, only one way to be like him: by renouncing our self, taking up our cross and following him…

But she will also tell us what she knows from experience—that with Jesus, to renounce our self, take up our cross and follow him by carrying it, is not putting a ball and chain on our feet but wings on our heart, joy, happiness, and a piece of heaven in our life…

Let us follow Jesus and let us follow him with Mary, his incomparable Mother. Let us fix our eyes not only on his divinity, but also on his holy humanity, his suffering humanity...
