Mary Help of Christians

Novena to Mary Help of Christians Day 4 (May 18)

(From Christus Vivit, Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation to young people and the entire people of God)

So I ask each one of you: do you see yourselves as the bearers of a promise? What promise is present in my heart that I can take up? Mary’s mission would undoubtedly be difficult, but the challenges that lay ahead were no reason to say ‘no’. Things would get complicated, of course, but not in the same way as happens when cowardice paralyzes us because things are not clear or sure in advance. Mary did not take out an insurance policy! She took the risk, and for this reason she is strong, she is an ‘influencer’, the ‘influencer’ of God. Her ‘yes and her desire to serve were stronger than any doubts or difficulties.’ (44)

3 Hail Mary’s
Mary, Help of Christians, pray for us.
