Day 18: Virgin Most Prudent, Pray for Us!

Having reflected on the fourteen titles of Our Lady that begin with the word “Mother,” we now turn our attention to the six titles of Our Lady that begin with the word “Virgin.” Virgin most prudent is the first in this section.

Prudence is one of the four cardinal virtues, along with Justice, Temperance, and Fortitude.  Prudence is the virtue that resides in our intellect and allows us to choose the right means to good ends. The prudent person listens, reflects, ponders, and then decides a course of action that will give the most glory to God. Important decisions should only be made when you are in the state of grace, and since Mary was “full of grace” we rightly call her “Virgin most prudent.”  When you are faced with an important decision, strive to be in the state of Grace, and don’t forget to ask Our Lady for advice. “Mary, what do you think?”

Virgin most prudent, pray for the Church and our Nation.

On Fridays we pray the Sorrowful Mysteries.
