Saturday of Our Lady

St. Bernardine of Siena calls the heart of Mary a treasury and a furnace. It is a treasure-store from which Mary, Seat of Wisdom, dispenses the riches of her knowledge of God to us.  It is a furnace of divine love  from which the words she spoke penetrate human hearts, and set them on fire with love for her Divine Son...
Mary's words were few but they are sufficient to guide our lives to her Son.
(Pilgrims With Mary, John Moloney P.P.)

Seat of Wisdom, your Son revealed his Heart as a treasure of wisdom and knowledge. You lived his life and were close to the secrets of his heart. Show me how to do his will; give me words to sing his praise; help me to keep his commandments.  Amen.

Peace be with you!
Rosemarie, ocds
