Passion of Christ

August 31

"Jesus prayed, preached and gave us the example of how we should live. But is that all He did to save the world? No, He saved it primarily by His Passion and Death."

-Emil Neubert, SM, STD

 

Today’s Reflection:

Are you ready to help conquer the world for Christ? Then be prepared to suffer in union with Him. Like Christ and our Blessed Mother, all true apostles have understood the redemptive value of suffering.

You are a witness of Christ!

August 30

"As a Christian, you are a witness of Christ; therefore give testimony to Him!"

-Emil Neubert, SM, STD

 

Today’s Reflection:

No one can argue with your own testimony because it's yours. In the Women of Grace Foundational Study we teach participants the short formula, "I was... Jesus did...I am." Think about your life of conversion and compose your testimony so that you can share the reason for your hope, the next time the opportunity presents itself.

The apostolic prayer par excellence

August 29
"Among all the prayers to the Blessed Virgin, there is one that can be called the apostolic prayer par excellence, namely, the Rosary.
-Emil Neubert, SM, STD
Today’s Reflection:
Our Lady of Fatima asked that we pray the rosary daily but often life gets in the way. Will you recommit to praying the rosary every day for the salvation of souls?

Pray! Pray!

August 28

"Pray! Pray! Undertake nothing without prayer!"

-Emil Neubert, SM, STD

 

Today’s Reflection:

Many a marvelous work for the Lord has crumbled because it was not sustained by prayer. It is the most effective and easiest form of apostolate. Do you pray as if your work, especially your work as a member of the Church Militant, depended on it?

Mary, Mother of the Body of Christ

August 27

-Father Guillame-Joseph Chaminade
Today’s Reflection:

Perseverance

August 23
"To be courageous is sometimes hard; but to persevere to the very end is a hundred times harder."
-Emil Neubert, SM, STD
Today’s Reflection:
How many of us have deserted the cause of Christ during times of trial, temptation, reversal, or suffering? Even St. Peter denied Jesus three times. Knowing this, let us resolve to begin again with greater receptivity, trust and surrender through the intercession of Our Blessed Mother.

Content

August 22

"Mary did not preach; she did not write; she did not found churches or apostolic works. She was content to pray and to suffer."

-Emil Neubert, SM, STD

 

Today’s Reflection:

By her prayers and her sufferings Mary contributed more to the salvation of mankind than Peter, Paul and all of the other apostles, all of the Popes, bishops, priests, doctors, and religious founders put together. How content are you to pray and suffer for the great work to which you have been called?

Courage!

August 21
"Come near to your heavenly Mother. She will teach you the courage which makes militants for Christ.
-Emil Neubert, SM, STD
Today’s Reflection:
Consider the divinely heroic courage the Virgin Mary had to manifest throughout her life -- at the birth of Christ in a stable; the flight into Egypt; during Jesus's public ministry; at the foot of the Cross; at the tomb; after the ascension. Ask her to share a portion of her courage with you.
