3 April 2023 – Holy Monday

Lord God, she must have trembled, Mary, on that eve, because more than anyone else she felt the fragility of the enthusiasm that was stirring up the crowd. Like every woman, she sensed.

To all those who today are afraid, who ache for those they love, give them the support of a strong woman.

We ask this in the name of Jesus, in the fidelity of his Spirit who prays in us, as he prayed in Mary.
