"Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life: and few there are that find it!" ~Matthew 7:13-14
How often we have heard these beautiful words of our Lord. How often we have heard that true devotion of Mary is the fastest, more sure, safest way to become closer to God? We need to turn to Mary, give her all of our selves, sparing nothing and place within her Immaculate Heart all our spiritual and temporal needs. It is within this sacred vessel that we shall oneday break upon the shores of salvation.
Dear Blessed Mother, I ask, wilt thou be for me
and my family the Narrow Gate which leads to Heaven?
Mary, Mother of Sorrows, Mother of God, be our salvation!
O Mater Dolorosa ~ Ora Pro Nobis! Amen+
