Day 11

From the Hymn AKATHISTOS to the Mother of God:

"Rejoice, for the things of Heaven rejoice with the earth:
Rejoice, for the things of earth join chorus with the heavens!
Rejoice, never-silent mouth of the Apostles:
Rejoice, invincible courage of the passion-bearers!."

From the saints:

 "This is my greatest confidence; this is the whole reason for my hope." (Saint Bernard).

To meditate:

Think how there is no reason for you not to trust in the Blessed Virgin Mary, Our Mother. Contemplate her in the wedding at Cana. Attentive to the needs of others she sees that there is no wine. She doesn’t just realize it but she tries to fix it. How? She approaches her Divine Son. She intercedes for the need that she see. “They have no wine.” Won’t she do the same for us? Won’t she intercede before her Son for us as well, and attain all we need from Him?


Today try to imitate our Blessed Mother in this attentiveness to others, trying to see the needs of those around you and, as much as you can, helping them. Do it all united to her and ask her help to do it as she would.
