Today’s Reflection:

Today’s message on our journey to consecration is simple and deeply profound. We are called to be the one we crave. In other words, we need to be deeply aware of who we are and our needs in love, mercy and charity so that we may recognize AND respond appropriately to those same needs in others. While we are called to be in relationship with others to better know Christ we are equally called know ourselves so we may reflect Christ. We can best accomplish this through the intercession of his Holy mother.

To Ponder:

Reconcile with a known weakness and offer it to Mary that she may help you develop that weakness into a joyful song of praise to her son.

Let Us Pray:

Holy Mary, mother of God pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death Amen.

  1. Thank you for your thoughtful reflection Gina. I think you really honed in on something here, especially about balancing our desire to see Christ in others with knowing ourself so that we can better reflect Christ. I knew immediately what weakness I need to offer. This whole experience is more than perfectly timed. Thanks

  2. Hello Kate.
    I agree with you on the timing of this Consecration. A true gift for me at this time. Thanks for your kind words.
