From the altar of our hearts... a reminder ... (Easter Saturday)

 "Him whom the heavens cannot contain, the womb of one woman bore. 
She ruled our Ruler.  She carried Him in whom we all are. 
She gave milk to our Bread." - St Augustine, Sermon 184

"When we go before Jesus on the altar,
we always find Him with Mary His Mother,
as the magi did at Bethlehem (Mt 2:11). 

And Jesus in the sacred Host,
from the altar of our hearts,
can repeat to each one of us what He said to
St John the Evangelist from the altar of Calvary,
Behold thy Mother (Jn 19:27). 

Fr Stefano Manelli, O.F.M.
