“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.”
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 and your novena petition. How does the favor you received from God through Our Lady’s intercession increase your hope? Recall another instance or period of time when you received mercy and grace according to this definition. How were graces dispensed far beyond your merits?
