Ave Maria!— October’s Theme: Prayer
?Love the lesson from Holy Scripture?, says St. Jerome, ?if you want to be loved by divine wisdom, if you want her to guard and possess you. You used to adorn yourself in various ways, adds the holy Doctor at once, ?you wore jewels on your bosom, necklaces at your throat, jeweled earrings. For the future let holy readings be your gems and your jewels by which to adorn your soul with holy thoughts and devout sentiments.?
