A mode of being

July 25
"...the Eucharist is a mode of being, which passes from Jesus into each Christian, through whose testimony it is meant to spread throughout society and culture. For this to happen, each member of the faithful must assimilate, through personal and communal meditation, the values which the Eucharist expresses, the attitudes it inspires, the resolutions to which it gives rise."
-St. John Paul II

Those who are suffering

May 16
"The conviction that Mary is close to those who are suffering or in situations of serious danger has prompted the faithful to invoke her as 'Benefactress.' The same trusting certainty is expressed in the most ancient Marian prayer with the words, “We fly to thy patronage, O holy Mother of God; despise not our petitions in our necessities but deliver us always from all dangers, O glorious and blessed Virgin (from the Roman Breviary)."
-St. John Paul II

Mary's role as advocate

May 10
“Mary exercises her role as ‘Advocate’ by co-operating both with the Spirit, the Paraclete, and with the One who interceded on the Cross for his persecutors (cf. Lk 23:24), whom John calls our ‘advocate with the Father’ (1 John 2:1). As a mother, she defends her children and protects them from the harm caused by their own sins.”
-St. John Paul II

"Mother of mercy and of hope obtain for the men and women of the third millennium the precious gift of peace; peace in hearts and families, in communities and among peoples; peace above all for those Nations where people fight and die every day.
Obtain that every human being of every race and culture may encounter and accept Jesus, who came down to earth in the mystery of Christmas to give 'His' peace to us.
O Mary, Queen of Peace, give us Christ, the world's true Peace!"
- St. John Paul II

Where do you need more peace in your life? Ask the Child Jesus to grant you the precious gift of His peace this Christmas.
