LENT WITH OUR LADY
FOURTH SUNDAY OF LENT
1. The true love of God consists in the performance of all things for love of Him. The greatest deed has no value in God’s sight if it has not been done for love.
2. The love of God shows itself also in suffering. When Jesus was about to die for us, He said: “I go, that the world may know that I love the Father” (John xiv. 31).
O Mary, teacher of love, teach me to love God
as thou lovest Him, and to show my love, particularly by doing and suffering all for my God as He wills it. I wish to walk the path of troubles and sufferings, and daily to follow thy Divine Son until I obtain the reward of loving God with thee in heaven for all eternity
Let us pray that through our Blessed Mother we may obtain the grace to do all things for the love of God.
Give some alms today in honour of Mary. Be thus the comforter of the afflicted, and the help of Christians. If thou dost abandon us, what will befall us, O life of Christians! – St.Germanus
