Thought of the Day February 17, 2016

Mary, Comforter of the afflicted, pray for us! This role of Mary--to comfort those in affliction--began at Calvary, where her presence, sharing in Jesus' sufferings, must have given him some consolation. thought sinless by God's grace, she must have mourn over the sins of the world that her Son had taken upon himself. In turn she invites us to join her on Calvary to mourn for our sins and those of the world. Thus we will be fulfilling the Beatitude that says: "Blessed are they who mourn, they shall be consoled." When we experience our afflictions, Mary is there to comfort and strengthen us to endure the cross with her Son.
