Day 7: Mother of Divine Grace, Pray for Us!

Grace is such a Catholic word! They say you can’t see grace because it’s invisible, but what do “they” know anyway? I say, you can see the effects of grace. You can see it in a smile, you can feel it in a handshake, you can give it with your helping hand, you can hear it in the kind and gentle and peaceful words of people who walk with Jesus, you can be inspired by it by those who courageously and steadfastly give witness to the Truth.  St. Pius X, who had a great love for the Blessed Mother once wrote: “To desire grace without recourse to the Virgin Mother is to desire to fly without wings.” So, get it whenever you can: sanctifying grace, sacramental grace, actual grace, charismatic grace, and the state of grace God gives you to carry out your special tasks and responsibilities.

Mother of Divine Grace, Pray for the Church and our Nation.

On Mondays we pray the Joyful Mysteries.
