Prayer of the Day

Feast of The Immaculate Heart of Mary

June 13th, 2015
"“Mary stored up all these things in her heart.”" Luke 2 : 41

 Mary faced a number of situations she did not understand. We are told this at the Nativity and  when she hears Simeon’s prediction, also Jesus appears to be telling her at the Cana wedding this is none of our business, when she hears Jesus say who is my mother?, and most of all at the foot of the cross. But Mary kept moving on without understanding, pondering in her heart. Her steadfastness, her single-heartedness was on trust.  How could a mother understand that her innocent Son is being cruelly executed?  

Mary was steeped in a trust born of her pondering heart, her immaculate undivided heart.

Prayer Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you. Blessed are you among woman and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen
