May it be said of you and of me...
Exemplary mother of the great Augustine, you perseveringly pursued your wayward son not with wild threats but with prayerful cries to heaven. Intercede for all mothers in ourday so that they may learn to draw their children to God.Teach them how to remain close to their children, even the prodigal sons and daughters who have sadly gone astray. Amen.St Monica, pray for us!

fit panis hominum;
Dat panis cœlicus
O res mirabilis!
Pauper, servus et humilis.
Te trina Deitas
Sic nos tu visita,
sicut te colimus;
Per tuas semitas
duc nos quo tendimus,
Ad lucem quam inhabitas.—
Bread of the Angels
Is made bread for mankind;
Gifted bread of Heaven
Of all imaginings the end;
Oh, thing miraculous!
This body of God will nourish
the poor, the servile, and the humble.
Thee Triune God,
Do us Thou visit,
Just as Thee we worship.
By Thy ways,
lead us where we are heading,
to the light Thou dwellest in.

“As often as you can, escape to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, to keep Him company, even for just a few seconds.
And tell Him with all your soul that you love Him, that you want to love Him more, and that you love Him for all the people on earth, including those who say they don't love Him.”
St Josemaría often prayed and sang the hymn Adoro te devote, “O Godhead hid”.

Let us follow her... who follows Him...
The Virgin of Nazareth who surrendered her heart, her soul, and
her flesh to the Word and the overshadowing of the Holy
the Virgin of Bethlehem, joyful in her poverty;
the Virgin of Egypt, trusting in her exile;
the Virgin of Jerusalem, anguished and amazed by her child;
the Virgin of Cana, strong in her intercession;
the Virgin of Calvary, faithful in her compassion;
the Virgin of Holy Saturday, silent and indomitable in her hope;
the Virgin of the Cenacle, persevering in prayer;
the Virgin of the Mount of Olives, ardent in her desire,
has, at last, come to rest at the feet of her Son. (Dom Mark Kirby, OSB)
