Hold your beads

December 10
"In the evening when you go to sleep, hold your beads, doze off reciting them, do like those babies who go to sleep mumbling, 'Mamma! Mamma!'"
- St. Bernadette
Today's Reflection:
What a precious image: a baby falling asleep, knowing he or she is protected and cared for. Today, open your heart and mind to this image, but instead of a baby, place yourself in the arms of our Mother. How safe do you feel as you lie within Her care? Pray a few times, "Mamma! Mamma!"

Only one enmity

October 30
"God has fashioned and shaped only one enmity, and that an irreconcilable one, which will endure and even increase, until the end.

-St. Louis de Montfort
Today's Reflection:
How fortunate we are to have Mary as our Blessed Mother for always. How can I increase my love and respect for my Blessed Mother?
