Save the peace of the world

May 31

Love is proved by service

May 30
“How are Catholic women to accomplish their providential role as spiritual mothers (with Mary) of the human race?
They are to love Jesus, by spending themselves in serving the needs of Christ’s children as they have never done before… Love is proved by service. It is in spending ourselves for others that we mainly show our love for Our Lord…"

Receive Jesus often

May 29
“How are Catholic women to accomplish their providential role as spiritual mothers (with Mary) of the human race?
They are to receive Jesus by often receiving Him into their hearts... God has made the hearts of women naturally self-giving. But their womanly nature must be fortified on the Sacrament of Love to give them the heroic strength needed to mother the Church today.”
-Father John Hardon, S.J.

-Father John A. Hardon, S.J.

The salvation of the world

May 25
“To bring about his salvation, all man has to contribute is his readiness to give himself up completely. The receptive, passive attitude of the feminine principle appears as the decisive, the positive element in the Christian order of grace. The Marian dogma, brought down to a simple formula, means the co-operation of the creature in the salvation of the world.”
-Gertrud von le Fort

Follow in Mary’s footsteps

May 23
“…I am confident that the Holy Spirit is sending down His gifts of fiery tongues on the Church today – all with the emphasis on the women. He is inspiring them to follow in Mary’s footsteps and do for the beleaguered faithful in our own day what she did for the infant Church in her day…But, I repeat, it will take Mary-like women to achieve this miracle of renovation of the Church of God.”
-Father John A. Hardon, S.J.
