Memorial of the Immaculate Heart of Mary

Deep Pondering


Ponder deeply this vocation to which you were raised due to the only dignity of being a mother. Maternal dignity is at the same time a vocation saturated with sufferings, and that is what I share with you. I thank you, my little one, for your participation that is continual and filled with sacrifices. I, as a loving Mother, can assure you of your heavenly reward.” (Mary) (April 27, 1964)

Today’s Readings: Blessed is the Virgin Mary who kept the word of God
and pondered it in her heart.(Luke 2)

Prayer Meditation- O Lord, as a  beautiful follow-up to the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart, we honor the Immaculate Heart of Mary. More than anyone, She pondered Your Word, pondered it in Her Heart and was fully conformed to Your Most Holy and Divine Will. We may think we are far away from all of this, and yes, praise You Lord, Our Mother had the singular privilege of being immaculately conceived. Yet She is our loving Mother and She wants to share particularly with mothers Her maternal dignity saturated with sufferings. For wives and moms we know our vocation is full of sacrifices and yet also so rewarding and exactly where You have put us especially for such a time as this (Esther 4:14). And we can ponder and pray and  unite our lives and vocations to Our Mother who is with us and for us and She only wants us united to Her Heart and Yours now and into eternity! Totus tuus!
