As a Christian, you are another Christ

July 13
“As a Christian, you are another Christ. As a militant, you continue the work of Christ. Imitate Christ, therefore, and let our Blessed Mother form you as she formed Christ.”
-Emil Neubert, SM, STD
Today’s Reflection:
Like any good Christian mother, Our Blessed Mother desires to form you into “another Christ.” Her knowledge, perfection and skill surpasses all earthly mothers. How does this knowledge impact the degree to which you will entrust yourself to Jesus through Mary?

Time is short

July 12

“Mary must be terrible to the devil and his crew, as an army ranged in battle, principally in these latter times, because the devil, knowing that he has but little time, and now less than ever, to destroy souls, will every day redouble his efforts and his combats. He will presently raise up cruel persecutions and will put terrible snares before the faithful servants and true children of Mary, whom it give him more trouble to conquer than it does to conquer others.”

-St. Louis De Montfort, True Devotion to Mary

Queen of the Apostles

July 11
“It is not an empty flattery to bestow on Mary the title of Queen of the Apostles. Just as she assisted the Apostles, the teachers of the infant church with the support and advice of a mother, so we must affirm that at all times and in all ways she accords her assistance to all those who inherit the office of the Apostles.”
-Pope Benedict XV
Today’s Reflection:
Mary’s role as Queen of Apostles did not end with the coming of the Holy Ghost. In fact, it was only beginning. Just as she interceded for the Apostles and the early Church, she desires to intercede for us in our task of conquering the world for Christ, through the power of her spouse, the Holy Spirit.

Spiritual mother

July 10

“Behold thy Mother.”

-John19:27

 

Today’s Reflection:

Our Lord Jesus confided His mother to us. She gave Him natural life. She gives us supernatural life. She sustains and nurtures supernatural life in us by the grace of light, love, and strength that she obtains on our behalf through her intercession.

As Christ’s militants, we are called to imitate Mary, as spiritual mother to others, through our own intercession, prayers, and love. Who can you spiritually mother today?

Obedience of Mary

July 8
“To repair the damage done by our first parents, divine Mercy devised a ‘plan of revenge’ modeled so to speak, on the plan of our defeat. God willed that at the side of the New Adam there should be a ‘New Eve,’ Mary. Just as a fallen angel, disguised as a serpent, suggested disobedience to the first Eve, so the good angel, Gabriel, asked obedience of Mary.”
-Emil Neubert, SM, STD
Today’s Reflection:
What does this quote reveal to you about the role of obedience in our call
to imitate Mary?

Make disciples of all nations

July 7
“Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.”
-Matthew 28:19-20
Today’s Reflection:
Jesus associated Mary in His mission. He made her a perfect militant and one who influences all men without exception. We too, are integral to Christ’s mission on earth. Ask the Lord help you operate in the grace of
your baptismal call.

Supernatural training

July 6
“It was Mary who presided over the training of Christ. She wishes to take care of your supernatural training, too, by forming you to
the likeness of her first-born Son.”
-Emil Neubert, SM, STD
Today’s Reflection:
Ponder Mary’s deep understanding of her Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. Ask her to teach you to think like Christ, to feel like Christ, to will like Christ, in short,
to be another Christ.

Devotion to Mary

July 5
“True, a certain form of devotion to Mary is for children. But there is another,
at least every bit as real, which is for adults, and in particular for militants.”
-Emil Neubert, SM, STD
Today’s Reflection:
In what, do you think this “adult,” “militant” devotion to Mary consists? Are you open to its discovery? Or does this thought intimidate you? Why?

Christ, your leader

July 4
“If Christ is your Leader and your Model, you ought to think as He does.”
-Emil Neubert, SM, STD

Do you have Christ-like thoughts when it comes to poverty? To suffering? To His command to take up your cross and follow Him? Ponder these questions and take them into your next time of examination or confession.
