|St. Josemaria, pray for us!|
We have to love the Blessed Virgin Mary more. We will never love her enough!
—Love her a lot! It shouldn’t be enough for you to put up pictures of her, and greet them, and say aspirations. You should learn to offer her, in your strenuous life, some small sacrifice each day, to show her your love, and to show her the kind of love that we want the whole human race to proclaim for her. (The Forge, #527)
If you've fallen out of touch with your earthly mother, give her a call today (few things would please Our Lady more, I suppose). If you've fallen out of touch with Mother Mary, pick up those old, unused rosary beads and give them a workout, even if you only manage one decade and can't remember any of the mysteries, just give her "a call". All mother's appreciate that!
Why the Rosary?
The rosary is a powerful spiritual weapon, one which many popes, including the recently sainted JP2, have called on Catholics time and again to return to in fidelity. It is a special way to contemplate the face of Christ with Mary, His mother (cf. Rosarium Virginis Mariae, 3.) As St. Josemaria reminded us, in The Way, "The holy Rosary is a powerful weapon. Use it with confidence and you will be amazed at the results."
So, friends, say a prayer and be prepared to "be amazed."
