Ave Maria!

Mary Vitamin for December 3rd

Topic: Mary is our Advent

Fr. Angelo M. Geiger, FI
??Christmas is always with us, and therefore Mary is always our Advent. She is always announcing the coming dawn.??
??The Morning Star of Advent?? from the magazine
Missio Immaculatae International, November 2007 edition**

Fr. Angelo explains this idea by calling upon the words of the Seraphic Father St. Francis:

??Behold: daily He humbles Himself as when from heaven’s royal throne He came down into the womb of the Virgin. Daily He Himself comes to us with like humility; daily He descends from the bosom of the Father upon the altar in the hands of the priest??
Admonition 1

What are my Advent plans?
Have I included Mary in my preparation for Christmas?
How can I become more like the Blessed Virgin so that the Lord may find repose in my heart and in my life this Christmas?

Today, I will say the Rosary and pay attention to the closing prayer of the Rosary,

??By meditating on these mysteries, of the most Holy Rosary, of the Blessed Virgin Mary, may we imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise …??

I will ask Our Lady to help me to prepare for Christmas.

(Here’s a link to How to pray the Rosary)

Marian Vow:
Fr. Angelo
??Our Lady’s life must become our life, all day, every day, through a continuous effort to be one with Her.??
(same article from Missio Immaculatae International)

I give this resolution to the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Thanks be to God for graces received.
