My practice for the 2nd week of Advent

I will reflect on…

Mary said, “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word.” (Lk. 1:38)


It was Our Lady who taught me how to love God spiritually and how to do His Holy Will in all things. O Mary, You are my joy, for it was through You that God came down to Earth into my heart. (Diary 40)

Every day (until the next Sunday), with the help of God’s grace:

  • In a short morning prayer, I will entrust myself to Mary and ask Her to help me find God’s will for me for that day and to lovingly fulfill it.
  • During the day, I will remember the presence of Jesus within me and will ask Him:  Jesus, what is it that I have to do? What do You expect from me?  How do I do this to make You happy? What would be better in this situation? What’s the best way to respond?  What to say? What would You have done in my place?
  • Together with Mary, I will listen intently to Your voice within me and during the day often repeat:  “May it be done to me according to Your word.”
