LENT WITH OUR LADY
THURSDAY IN LENT II

PONDER
1. Patience is a necessary virtue for every Christian. “In your patience, ye shall possess your souls.” (Luke xxi. 19), said the Lord. He is our exemplar.

2. Mary is called Queen of the Martyrs, because of her great patience, especially during her sufferings beneath the Cross of her Son.

PRAY
O Queen of Martyrs, although innocent, thou has suffered much with great patience. Should not I, who have deserved hell, suffer even more than thou? I ask, dear Mother, not for the grace to be freed from my sufferings, but for the grace to bear them patiently, following thy example, O Mistress of Patience. Amen.

Let us pray that through the Queen of Martyrs we may obtain the virtue of patience.

PRACTICE

Resolve to approach the sacraments of Penance and the Holy Eucharist, on all the festivals of the Blessed Virgin.

O Mary, may my heart never cease to love thee, nor my tongue to praise thee! –St. Bonaventure
