[MaryVitamin] Stations of the Cross with Mary X

Mary Vitamin for March 7th

Topic: The  Tenth Station - Jesus is stripped of His garments

St. Katharine Drexel
"O incomprehensible Love! May I be covered over by the seamless garment woven so lovingly by Our Lady. May she cover me with it so that I may see God's Will in all that happens."
 Praying with Mother Katharine Drexel, 16

St. Therese
"O my Beloved, no one had this right over you and yet you obeyed not only the blessed Virgin and St. Joseph but even your executioners."
St. Therese continues. "Now in the Sacred Host I see you at the height of your annihilations. How humble you are, O divine King of Glory, to subject yourself to all your priests without making any distinction between those who love you and those who are, alas! Lukewarm or cold in your service … At their word you come down from heaven. Whether they advance or delay the hour of the Holy Sacrifice, you are always ready…O my Beloved, how gentle and humble of heart You seem under the veil of the white host! To teach me humility you cannot humble yourself further."
The Prayers of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, (ICS Publications: 1997), 116.

Let me accept the day, in all that happens, in great humility as the Will of God in the presence of Our Lady.
To help attain this resolution, I will make a Spiritual Communion and say "Jesus, meek and humble of heart, make my heart like unto Thine."

Marian Vow:
St. Margaret Mary Alacoque
"O my Mother, imprint deeply in my heart the wounds of your crucified Son."
The Thoughts and Saying of Saint Margaret Mary, (Tan Books: 1986), 17.

I give this resolution to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Thanks be to God for graces received.
