WEDNESDAY IN LENT II
1. “Obedience is better than sacrifices.” (I Kings xv. 22). Christ was obedient unto death.
2. Mary subjected her will to the will of others out of love for God. Only when thou dost likewise is thy obedience of true value.
O my dear Queen and Mother of my God, pray to Jesus, and obtain for me through thy obedience the grace always to fulfill God’s holy will. Help me to do out of pure love for God the will of my superiors, especially to submit myself cheerfully to my spiritual director. Amen.
Let us pray that through our Blessed Mother we may acquire the virtue of obedience.
Resolve to read a chapter each day in some pious author. The reading of a good book gave an Ignatius to the church!
To thee do we raise our eyes, O holy Mother of God.
