Thought for the Week
Let us deem ourselves very fortunate if, by a singular favour of the Blessed Virgin, we should obtain, through the Rosary, only this: the grace to live in a way that will be pleasing to Jesus and Mary; the grace to turn all our worldly successes and prospects to our Lord’s glory and our own salvation; the grace to bear our crosses and tribulations with fortitude; the grace to be so united with Christ here below – now on Tabor, now in Gethsemane, now on the Mount of Olives – that, taking our cross on our shoulders, we may go by the road of Calvary to our imperishable crown.
