Feast of the Presentation of Mary

“Mary is the heart of the Church. This is why all works of charitySt AnthonyMaryClaret spring from her. It is well known that the heart has two movements: systole and diastole. Thus Mary is always performing these two movements: absorbing grace from her Most Holy Son, and pouring it forth on sinners.”

                                         -St. Anthony Mary Claret


For Reflection:           

As a son/daughter of Mary, how can I imitate her as “the heart of the Church?” In what ways can I live this out daily? (Consider the ways given to us to “absorb grace” from Jesus and the means we have for “pouring it forth” on others.)
