Wonderful Lord, on the Feast of Blessed Virgin Mary’s visit with Elizabeth, we are reminded that You are a God of joy and that You always fulfill Your promises. I ask the Blessed Mother to intercede for me when I feel discouraged, so that my soul may always magnify You, O Lord. May she remind me of Your promises and Your faithfulness when the difficulties of life cover me with darkness. Give me a spirit that rejoices in You, my Savior, for all the great things that you have done for me and will continue to bestow upon me, simply because You love me. Thank You for all You have done and will do! Blessed Virgin Mary, pray for me. Amen.
Quotes for Today
Pope Saint John Paul II (1920-2005)
Feast day October 22
Mary’s visit to Elizabeth is a prelude to Jesus’ mission and, in cooperating from the beginning of her motherhood in the Son’s redeeming work, she becomes the model for those in the Church who set out to bring Christ’s light and joy to the people of every time and place.”
Saint Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179)
Feast day September 17
Mercy, in the person of a woman, is a most fruitful mother of souls snatched from perdition…. This same virtue appears in the form of a woman because the sweetest Mercy arose in feminine chastity, in the body of Mary.”
The prayer above is from Terry Modica’s book Daily Prayers with the Saints.
