From the Hymn AKATHISTOS to the Mother of God:
"Rejoice, star that causest the Sun to appear:
Rejoice, womb of the Divine Incarnation!
Rejoice, Thou through whom creation is renewed:
Rejoice, Thou through whom we worship the Creator!
Rejoice, Virgin and Spouse!"
From the saints:
"Just thinking of Mary fills my soul with consolation. She is my delight." (Saint Felipe Neri).
To meditate on:
How consoling it is to think that we have a Mother in Heaven who loves us and never forgets us! Think of how we see proof of this when at the foot of the cross she pronounced her fiat anew when she received us as her children. Think about how much you should love her if she loves you so much and of how everything you can do to please her should seem hardly anything.
Offer God today a small sacrifice in thanksgiving for having filled his mother's heart with so much love.
