Prayer of the Day
Feast of The Assumption of The Blessed Virgin MaryAugust 15th, 2015
Mary believed in the promises when they were only promises, long before they were realised. In our selected passage for today’s reflection, Mary is acclaimed by Elizabeth as “blessed among women” for trusting in the Lord’s words to her. In faith Mary had been treasuring extraordinary secrets of God. Like Jesus, Mary would be disappointed and tested; she would be rebuffed and frustrated; yet she continued to trust. She realised, as she sang her Magnificat, that God “had done great things for her.”
Mary is our model of faith. She provides an example of how to be obedient to the goals and hopes which God, through Jesus, places within us.
The Almighty as done great things for us and ‘Holy’ is his name. Amen
