“Extraordinary people survive under the most terrible circumstances and they become more extraordinary because of it.”
― Robertson Davies
Yes, we are living in extraordinary times.
I began my day today by saying a prayer for our world while lighting a votive candle.
I was surprised at how much comfort this gave me.
Maybe it would be for you, too?
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided.
Inspired with this confidence,
I fly to thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother.
To thee I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy, hear and answer me. Amen.
