LENT WITH OUR LADY
THURSDAY IN LENT IV

PONDER

1. The more one progresses in the knowledge of divine truths, the more he realizes that nothing on earth can satisfy the desire of his heart. He gazes, therefore, toward heaven; for only in the possession of God is there for him true peace and perfect happiness.

2. The constant desire of possessing God is an indication
that man is in the state of grace, is God’s child, and belongs to the number of the elect.

PRAY

O my dearly beloved Mother, now I know more than ever that many bonds hold me back, and that my heart has not reached perfect rest. Bind me with the bonds of thy love to God, so that I shall not
leave Him until He is mine, and I am His. Amen.

Let us pray that through our Blessed Mother we may obtain a true desire for the possession of God.

PRACTICE

Recite the “Stabat Mater” in honor of this most afflicted Mother. Make the cross the frequent subject of your meditation.

O Mother, fountain of love, make me feel the
force of thy sorrow, and weep with thee: inflame
my heart with the love of Christ, my God!
