Day 23: Virgin Most Faithful, Pray for Us!

Semper fidelis — always faithful. That is the inspiring motto of the United States Marines who are faithful to country, ready to serve and defend our country to the point of death. The Blessed Mother is always faithful to God, always faithful to Jesus, always ready to stand by Him in the hour of his greatest need. When all of the apostles have fled, except the youngest one, John, Mary is there next to Jesus on the cross, “close to Jesus to the last.” At the most humiliating moment in the life of Jesus, when it looked like his entire life had been a complete and utter failure, Our Blessed Mother did not hesitate to stand at his side. A faithful woman makes her husband strong, and a faithful husband will never tolerate the least bit of disrespect for his wife.

Virgin Most Faithful, pray for the Church and our Nation.

On Wednesdays we pray the Glorious Mysteries.
