Marian thought for November
«And, if you do not know how to speak to Him nor what to say, or do not dare to seek Jesus within you, go to Mary, Tota pulchra—all pure, wonderful—to entrust unto her: Lady, Our Mother, the Lord wanted you, to take care of God with your hands. Teach me, teach us all, how to treat your Son!» (Saint Josemaría Escrivá).
Lumen Gentium, 58
"The Blessed Virgin advanced in her pilgrimage of faith and faithfully persevered in her union with her Son unto the cross, where she stood, in keeping with the divine plan, grieving exceedingly with her only begotten Son, uniting herself with a maternal heart with His sacrifice, and lovingly consenting to the immolation of this Victim which she herself had brought forth. Finally, she was given by the same Christ Jesus dying on the cross as a mother to His disciple with these words: "Woman, behold thy son" (Lumen Gentium, 58).
