May 16th Meditation: Mary at the foot of the Cross

May 16: Mary at the foot of the Cross


“We find her on Calvary, at the foot of the cross, praying. This is nothing new for Mary. She has always acted like this, in fulfilling her duties and looking after her home. As she went about the things of this earth, she kept her attention on God.” 

(“A Life of Prayer”, Friends of God, 241) 



Let us offer to our Mother today: An act of contrition said many times, asking her to offer our sorrow for our sins to Jesus crucified.
