LENT WITH OUR LADY

SATURDAY IN LENT II

PONDER

1. “Blessed are the clean of heart; for they shall see God” (Matt. v. 8). Let Mary be thy model of purity.

2. In all thy actions aim to please God alone. Mary had the purest of all motives when she made her vow of virginity, as well as when she accepted the dignity of motherhood.

PRAY

O purest spouse of the Holy Ghost, Immaculate Virgin Mary, teach me to preserve purity of heart. Protect me from every impure temptation, and shield me from every desire of vainglory. Grant that I may always offer to God a clean heart, for He is
the Holiest of the holy. Amen.

Let us pray to obtain of our Blessed Mother the gift of purity of heart.

PRACTICE

Let not this day pass without offering to Mary some act of mortification, either of the will, or the curiosity, or the senses, or the appetite. The rose of virtue must bloom amidst the thorns of self-denial.

We fly to thy patronage, O Holy Mother of
God!
