MOTHER MARY, HELP ME LOVE GOD WITH CONCRETE DEEDS!
As a popular Spanish adage goes, “obras son amores y no buenas razones” (love is deeds and not sweet words), let us ask our Mother to help us love God with concrete deeds all throughout the day. The same thing is true in our dealings with the people God placed beside us.
What deeds of love could we offer to God at this very moment?…Perhaps, it could be a small act of service, a smile, not saying that negative comment, saying sorry to someone, going to Confession, carrying out a menial thing even if we don’t feel like it, offering our tiredness, overcoming our laziness, putting down our smartphone during meal time…and so on. Do whatever the Holy Spirit whispers to you…for love of God and of others.
Mother Mary, help us!
