Daily Gracelines – Lenten Journey with Mary – Day 18


Daily Gracelines – Lenten Journey with Mary – Day 18

Mary’s sorrowing heart is the perfect “vehicle” to take us more deeply into the passion of Jesus, Our Lord.

I pray for the grace to enter deeply into the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ by means of the Immaculate Heart of Mary

March 18:

To drink the chalice with the Lord (Mt. 20:21) means dying to one’s natural self – both in the sensitive and in the spiritual part. Only in this way can one enter the narrow way.

— St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross
                           (Edith Stein)

For Reflection:
Recall again that Scripture and Tradition tell us that Mary stood at the foot of the Cross.  What is the significance of this stance and what does it indicate about Mary?  How was this a “dying to one’s natural self,” in the sense and emotions as well as in the spirit? Read Matthew 7:14.  Mary’s fiat gained was her gate to the narrow way, a way she followed all her life.  What is your current sorrow? How can it be a narrow way for you?
