LENT WITH OUR LADY

MONDAY IN LENT II

PONDER

1. The virtue of humility is the foundation of all other virtues. Consider the reward for this virtue in Mary. The Lord hath regarded the low estate of His handmaid.

2. The humble man willingly performs tasks for others, to please them, as did Mary for her kinswoman, Elizabeth.

PRAY

It is impossible, O my Queen, to be thy child and a true follower of thy Son if I be not humble. Thou thyself seest that my sins have not made me humble but proud. O my Mother, help me, and through the merits of thy humility obtain for me the grace to be
humble, and thereby to become thy child. Amen.

Let us pray that through our Blessed Mother we may obtain the grace of humility.

PRACTICE

Resolve to let no day pass without saying, if possible, the third part of the Rosary. How little do we think of a quarter of an hour spent in idle conversation! If we were really devout to Mary, we would find time enough for this most salutary and most consoling devotion.

Mother and Virgin, make me always mindful of thee! – St. Philip Neri
