DO YOU WANT TO LOVE OUR LADY?
“Do you want to love our Lady? Well, then, get to know her. How? By praying her Rosary well.
But, in the Rosary… we always say the same things! Always the same?
And don’t people in love always say the same things to each other?… Might it not be that you find the Rosary monotonous because, instead of pronouncing words like a man, you mumble noises while your mind is very far from God? Moreover, listen: before each decade we are told the mystery to be contemplated. Have you… ever contemplated these mysteries?
Become little. Come with me and — this is the essence of what I have to tell you — we will live the life of Jesus, Mary and Joseph.
Each day we will do something new for them. We will hear their family conversation. We will see the Messiah grow up. We’ll admire his thirty years of hidden life… We’ll be present at his Passion and Death… We will be amazed by the glory of his Resurrection… In a word: carried away by Love (the only real love is Love), we will contemplate each and every instant of Jesus Christ’s life.”
