Day 16 In Petition
Friday, August 30
The following quotes are excerpted from St. Faustina's "Diary: Divine Mercy in my Soul", points 11 and 872. As we pray the Fifth Glorious Mystery, may we ask Mary to be our Queen and guide us safely through life and into Heaven. She is our Queen and our Mother.
When I got off the train and saw that all were going their separate ways, I was overcome with fear. What am I to do? To whom should I turn, as I know no one? So I said to the Mother of God, Mary, lead me, guide me. Immediately I heard these words within me telling me to leave the town and to go to a certain nearby village where I would find a safe lodging for the night. I did so and found in fact that everything was just as the Mother of God told me. (Diary, #11)
Mary, Immaculate Virgin, take me under Your special protection and guard the purity of my soul, heart and body. You are the model and star of my life. (Diary, #874)
