"Let us conﬁdently draw near the throne of grace to receive mercy and to ﬁnd grace to help in time of need." —Heb 4:16
REFLECTION. "The life-giving graces ﬂow from Christ the Head, through the Blessed Virgin, into His Mystical Body. Mary received the great honor from God that no one should obtain any grace except through her hands." —St. Bernardine of Siena
PRAYER. O Mary, you are the Mediatrix of all graces. Let me
ask you each day for the graces I need to lead a truly Christian life, and obtain them for me from your Divine Son.
