Today, in honor of the special devotion of the Church during the month of May to the Blessed Virgin, I offer a five-day prayer to Mary with St. Catherine of Siena:
The month of April is dedicated in a special way to the Holy Eucharist and the Holy Spirit.
(Vintage prayer card from the sadly defunct website, Holy Card Heaven.)
“Pray to worthily receive Jesus Christ. Morning and evening prayer dispose our heart to the action of Grace.”
Our Parish has a 24-hour Adoration once a week, Friday overnight into Saturday. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to continue during the new school quarter, but I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to attend at very, very early hours throughout Lent.. I hope to continue on a regular basis, even if I have to change to a later schedule. If you’ve ever considered the practice, I highly recommend it.
