Mary Vitamin for April 11th
Topic: Thoughts of the Blessed Virgin Mary
"To think according to the Immaculate"
Marian Seraphic Pathways, #42
The Lord says:
"For from the fullness of the heart the mouth speaks."
"It is this Marian character which we see shining so splendidly in St. Maximilian M. Kolbe, who expended his life living constantly with his freely willed and most beloved fixed idea: the Immaculate, who also was inflamed and burned inexhaustively with mad love of the Immaculate. In him we find carved, as it were, the most perfect Marianization of mind and will at the highest, incandescent peak of intellectual light/full of love, as Dante sings (Paradise 32, 85-86).

Today, in a special way, I will try to practice: What would the Immaculate think in this instance?
"To think according to the Immaculate, act and conduct oneself according to the Immaculate, in total donation of everything to Her, in full correspondence of my thoughts to her thoughts, of my work to her work: this is that Marian character in action founded on unlimited consecration to the Immaculate."
Marian Seraphic Pathways, Article 6, #42
I give this resolution to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Thanks be to God for graces received.
