Hope for far greater graces

May 20

“Thou, O Lady, teaches us to hope for far greater graces than we deserve, since thou never ceases to dispense graces far, far beyond our merits.”

-St. Idelbert

Today's Reflection

One adage about mercy states that “Mercy is not getting what we deserve. Grace is getting what we don’t deserve.” Consider this in light of the above quote. How does the favors you have received from God through Our Lady’s intercession increase your hope? Recall an instance or period of time when you received mercy and grace according to this definition. How were graces dispensed far beyond your merits?
