From the Hymn AKATHISTOS to the Mother of God:
"Rejoice, for the fierce debaters are made foolish;
Rejoice, for the creators of the myths have wilted.
Rejoice, breaker of the webs of the Athenians' logic;
Rejoice, filler of the nets of the fishermen".
From the saints:
"To obtain a special grace, the most effective prayer is: Mary, Help of Christians, pray for us." (St. John Bosco)
To meditate on:
How many things and thoughts fill our head! How little time we spend talking with God, Mary or the saints! We find so many excuses, “I don’t have time, I have a lot of work, the kids, errands.” Its true that often our lives are full of activities but in midst of the activities we have to return from time to time to the center, which is God, Our Lord, Creator, Savior, the one who loves you. The ejaculatory prayers, which are short and spontaneous prayers, are excellent ways to unite ourselves again to that which is most important and speak to God during our daily activities.
Today lift your heart to God many times to above all give Him thanks.
