She may fashion you

June 3
“I have placed you in the care of my holy Mother, as a deposit in trust, so that she may fashion you according to my pattern.”
-Jesus to St. Margaret Mary Alocoque
Today's Reflection
Read Psalm 139: 13-16. Consider the way a baby is “fashioned” by God in the womb of its mother. Now, think of God fashioning you in this way spiritually within the heart of Mary according to the pattern of His Son. Why is Mary the perfect “place” for us to be entrusted? What would mark the maternal care she would provide for those given to her by her Son?

Preserve Peace of Heart

June 2
"But above all preserve peace of heart. This is more valuable than any treasure. In order to preserve it there is nothing more useful than renouncing your own will and substituting for it the will of the divine heart. In this way his will can carry out for us whatever contributes to his glory, and we will be happy to be his subjects and to trust entirely in him."
-St Margaret Mary Alacoque
Today's Reflection:
What do you hold onto in your life that is simply a desire of your own will? What in your life isn't of God, something that isn't God's will? How can you trust Him more today with His will and relinquish your own?

Our Lord’s earnest desire

June 1
"It seems to me that our Lord’s earnest desire to have His Sacred Heart honored in a special way is directed toward renewing the effects of redemption in our souls. For the Sacred Heart is an inexhaustible fountain and its sole desire is to pour itself out into the hearts of the humble so as to free them and prepare them to lead lives according to his good pleasure.”
 - St. Margaret Mary Alacoque
Today’s reflection:
In what one way can I honor Jesus more during this month of June dedicated to His Sacred Heart? (Some options may include enthroning your home to the Sacred Heart, spending time before the Eucharistic Presence on a regular basis, participating in First Friday devotions.)

Eternal Father

May 31
“Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the masses said throughout the world today, for all the holy souls in purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal church, those in my own home and within my family. Amen.”

Pray the Rosary

May 30
"Pray the Rosary for children, and even more, with children, training them from their earliest years to experience this daily pause for prayer with the family, is admittedly not the solution to every problem, but it is a spiritual aid which should not be underestimated."
-St. John Paul II, Rosarium Virginis Mariae
Today’s Reflection:
Prayer of the Holy Rosary can be a powerful weapon in your spiritual arsenal, particularly as a spiritual mother. How can you make use of the Rosary more regularly as a means of intercession for your family, friends, and spiritual children?

The virgin shall be with child

May 28
"Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin shall be with child, and bear a son, and shall name him Immanuel."
-Isaiah 7:14
Today’s Reflection:
Mary is the Ark of the New Covenant, Jesus. She is also mother of the Church. This makes her your mother. How can you more fully embrace her maternal care for you and all of those you love? How can you imitate her in your own spiritual maternity to those that God has entrusted to you?
