Daily Gracelines – Lenten Journey with Mary – Day 35
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
Virgin, ever interceding,
Hear me in my fervent pleading:
Fire me with your love of Christ.
Perhaps that which hinders us most from attaining “open-ended waiting” is our limited capacity to love. Today’s GraceLine contains the solution to this – we need Mary’s love of Christ since our own love is so weakened by concupiscence and sinfulness. St. Louis de Montfort tells us that if we consecrate ourselves to Jesus through Mary, our Mother gives us the operations of her soul. That means, we can receive her own love of Christ as our own. Is God asking you to make this consecration? Renew it? Live it more fully? How can you begin to do so today?
