Listen: “To desire grace without recourse to the Virgin Mother is to desire to fly without wings.”
Pope Pius XII
Ponder: What do I know about why the Virgin Mary holds a
prominent place in Catholic Tradition? How does she help God’s children
to grow in faith? Have I ever asked Mary to intercede for me? Why or why
Respond: Triune God, shower your grace on me. Holy
Mother, pray that I might use this grace to help others know and love
the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit more deeply.
