True wisdom allows each one of us to see and judge things according to God’s way.  This can be done by meditating on the the Word of God constantly.  We see this in the life of the Virgin Mary who was so united with God that she pondered on his word day and night.  This gave her the freedom to serve God with her whole being and to love others as she loved God.  Let us imitate the Blessed Virgin Mary and daily sit at the feet of Jesus and learn from him.

We would like to share with you an inspiring sermon given by Saint Lawrence Justinian, bishop…

While Mary contemplated all she had come to know through reading, listening and observing, she grew in faith, increased in merits, and was more illuminated by wisdom and more consumed by the fire of charity. The heavenly mysteries were opened to her, and she was filled with joy; she became fruitful by the Spirit, was being directed toward God, and watched over protectively while on earth. So remarkable are the divine graces that they elevate one from the lowest depths to the highest summit, and transform one to a greater holiness. How entirely blessed was the mind of the Virgin which, through the indwelling and guidance of the Spirit, was always and in every way open to the power of the Word of God. She was not led by her own senses, nor by her own will; thus she accomplished outwardly through her body what wisdom from within gave to her faith. It was fitting for divine Wisdom, which created itself a home in the Church, to use the intervention of the most blessed Mary in guarding the law, purifying the mind, giving an example of humility and providing a spiritual sacrifice.

Imitate her, O faithful soul…
