Listen: “A star, brethren, has four main characteristics: it
has the nature of fire, it is bright and clear, it sends forth a ray and
it shines in the night. We can find all these qualities in our star,
the Virgin Mary.” St. Peter Damian
Ponder: How has Mary been a star for the world and the church? Which aspects of her life teach me to be a star of faith now?
Respond: Holy Spirit, let me shine as Mary shines.
