Mother Most Admirable
And what was the most admirable act of Our Lady? Hard to say, really. There were so many . . . giving an unconditional ‘yes’ to God’s plans……visiting her cousin Elizabeth and doing chores around her house for three months as if she had nothing better to do…... not uttering a word of complaint on the way to Bethlehem as she reassured St. Joseph “don’t worry, everything will be fine!” ……pushing her way through the crowd to comfort her son as He carried His cross ……standing at the foot of the cross and telling the whole world “He’s my son and I love Him!!” Admirable. Most admirable. Mater admirabilis.
54 Day Rosary Novena based on the titles of the Blessed Mother as found in the Litany of Loreto.
About these reflections
Would you please join me in a 54 Day Rosary Novena praying for the upcoming Synod of the Family and the Supreme Court's deliberations on marriage so that God may be glorified and children protected?
We will start May 8.
You can pray the 54 Day Rosary Novena however you wish: alone, in a group, with your family. On a plane, in a train, in the car. You can do the regular, extra, or super-duper. The "super-duper" means praying all 20 mysteries of the rosary daily: Glorious, Joyful, Sorrowful, and Luminous.
Don't worry! There's no such thing as a bad rosary, no matter how distracted you might be or how chaotic life is. If you can't pray the rosary one day, you can get back on track the next day. The point is 'the rosary is powerful.' Very powerful. My father prayed it every day and managed to survive four years in the army in the South Pacific during WWII.
Each day I will post a short reflection on the many titles of the Blessed Mother from the Litany of Our Lady (Loreto) on my Facebook page.
