Listen: “Standing by the cross, Mary
shares in the gift which the Son makes of himself: she offers Jesus, gives him
over, and begets him to the end for our sake. The ‘yes’ spoken on the day of
the Annunciation reaches full maturity on the day of the cross.”
Pope St. John Paul II
Ponder: How does Mary share in Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross? How have I shared in that sacrifice?
Respond: Father, help me to share in the sacrifice and triumph of the cross.
