Mary Vitamin – Scourging at the Pillar

Mary Vitamin

Mary Vitamin for July 28th

Topic: The Second Sorrowful Mystery – Scourging at the Pillar
In honor of the Month of the Precious Blood

Quote:
[Pilate said] “I am innocent of this man’s blood. Look to it yourselves.” And the whole people said in reply, “His blood be upon us and upon our children.” Then he released Barabbas to them, but after he had Jesus scourged, he handed him over to be crucified. MT 27:24-26

Meditation:
Bl. Elizabeth of the Trinity
“The Virgin kept all these things in her heart”: her whole history can be summed up in these few words! It was within her heart that she lived, and at such a depth, that no human eye can follow her….This Queen of virgins is also Queen of martyrs; but again it was in her heart that the sword pierced, for with her everything took place within! Oh! How beautiful she is to contemplate during her long martyrdom, so serene, enveloped in a kind of majesty that radiates both strength and gentleness… She learned from the Word Himself how those must suffer whom the Father has chosen as victims, those whom He has decided to associate with Himself in the great work of redemption, those whom He “has foreknown and predestined to be conformed to His Christ,” crucified by love.
The Complete Works, Volume I (ICS Publications) “Last Retreat” #40.

Resolution:
Today, I will embrace one pain in order to imitate Our Lady’s interior dispositions during the scourging at the Pillar. I will say Our Lady of Fatima’s prayer, “For the love of God, the conversion of sinners, and sins against the Immaculate Heart of Mary.”
(St. Therese says, “For one pain endured with joy, we shall love the good God more forever.”)

Marian Vow:
St. Francis
Brothers, kissing your feet, and with all the charity of which I am capable, I beg all to use daily all possible reverence and honor toward the most Holy Body and Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ (Letter To The General Chapter).

I give this resolution to the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Thanks be to God for graces received.
