“Just as Mary bore Him in her womb – a defenseless little Child…”

WITHOUT THE LORD’S DAY, SUNDAY, LIFE DOES NOT FLOURISH

At the conclusion of Mass, Pope Benedict went out into the adjoining square where he climbed a podium to pray the Angelus. Before the Marian prayer he said:

“Just as Mary bore Him in her womb – a defenseless little Child, totally dependent on the love of His Mother – so Jesus Christ, under the species of bread, has entrusted Himself to you, dear brothers and sisters.

Love Him as Mary loved Him! Bring Him to others, just as Mary brought Him to Elizabeth as the source of joyful exultation! The Virgin gave the Word of God a human body, and thus enabled Him to come into the world as a man.

Give your own bodies to the Lord, and let them become ever more fully instruments of God’s love, temples of the Holy Spirit! Bring Sunday, and its immense gift, into the world!”

The Holy Father needs our prayers as he brings the message of Christ to the United States this week.
