[MaryVitamin] Stations with Mary I

Mary Vitamin for February 25th
Topic: The First Station 
"What is truth?"
Ven Mary of Agreda communicates the words of Our Lady:

In order to crush the head of Lucifer and overcome pride and arrogance, my Son observed this patient silence in his Passion, permitting Himself to be treated as an ignorant and foolish criminal. As the Teacher of this philosophy and as the Physcian of the sickness of sin, He would not deny the charges nor defend or justify Himself, nor refute those who accused Him, showing us by his own living example, how to oppose and counteract the intentions of the serpent.
... But do thou, my daughter, preserve the doctrine of my divine Son and that which comes from me. Abhor human ostentation, suffer in silence and let the world consider thee ignorant; for it does not know where true wisdom dwells.
The Mystical City of God, Volume III (Tan Books: 2006), 582. 

Wisdom and truth are embraced by accepting the Lord and His Cross. Our Lady will help me to do "Whatever He says." I will look for an obedience today.

Marian Vow:
John Paul II
This Wisdom is Jesus Christ himself, the Eternal Word of God, who perfectly reveals and accomplishes the will of the Father (cf.Heb 10:5-10). Mary invites everyone to accept this Wisdom. To us too she addresses the command she gave to the servants at Cana in Galilee during the marriage feast:  "Do whatever he tells you" (Jn 2:5).
Splendor, August 6, 1993. #119

I give this resolution to the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Thanks be to God for graces received.
