From the Hymn AKATHISTOS to the Mother of God:
"Rejoice, heavenly ladder by which God came down:
Rejoice, bridge that conveyest us from earth to Heaven!
Rejoice, wonder of angels sounded abroad:
Rejoice, wound of demons bewailed afar!"
From the saints:
«Mary is a virgin because her virginity is the sign of her faith "unadulterated by any doubt", and of her undivided gift of herself to God's will. It is her faith that enables her to become the mother of the Saviour: Beatior est Maria percipiendo fidem Christi quam concipiendo carnem Christi. ("Mary is more blessed because she embraces faith in Christ than because she conceives the flesh of Christ.") San Agustín.» (Catechism of the Catholic Church, No. 506).
To meditate on:
Think of how great Mary's faith was and how she teaches you how to believe. Because of her faith she did everything in God's presence, with the intention of doing nothing else than his Divine Will, and abandoning herself to God. Do you live like that? Do you live in God's presence? Do you do his Will? Do you live trusting in Him?
Today pray 3 Hail Mary's asking the Blessed Virgin Mary to help you to imitate the example that she gives you of faith and thanking her for being such a good model.
