May 20th Meditation: Mary – Our Hope

May 20: Mary – Our Hope 


pray-and-work” Our Lady, a full participant in the work of our salvation, follows in the footsteps of her Son: the poverty of Bethlehem, the everyday work of a hidden life in Nazareth, the manifestation of his divinity in Cana of Galilee, the tortures of his passion, the divine sacrifice on the cross, the eternal blessedness of paradise. All of this affects us directly, because this supernatural itinerary is the way we are to follow. Mary shows us that we can walk this path with confidence. She has preceded us on the way of imitating Christ; her glorification is the firm hope of our own salvation. For these reasons we call her ‘our hope, cause of our joy.’ ” (“Cause of Our Joy”, Christ is Passing By, 176) 


Let us offer to our Mother today: A smile when we do not feel like smiling.
