LENT WITH OUR LADY
MONDAY IN LENT III
1. Mary is a pattern of faith. She looked upon her
Babe in the stable of Bethlehem, saw Him flee from
Herod, saw Him persecuted throughout life, saw
His cross, His death; and she firmly believed this
Child to be the King of heaven and earth.
2. Thou, too, shouldst have such a lively faith. Perform
all thy tasks in the contemplation of God;
pray, work, suffer, because God wills it.
O Mother of the faithful, Holy Mary, help me to
live through the faith, to use the faith given me in
holy baptism as the motive of all my actions, and to
follow all its precepts, so that I may ever become
more and more virtuous. Amen.
Let us pray to obtain through our Blessed Mother
the virtue of faith.
Recite the acts of Faith, Hope, and Charity, today,
in honour of Mary, and make this one of the devotions
which you will resolve to practice in her honour.
O Mary, by the love thou didst bear to Jesus
Christ, help me to love Him. – St. Brigid
