cripture meditation: God made two great lights: a greater one to rule the day, and a lesser one to rule the night. Genesis 1:16
Reflection: The moon, standing between the sun and the earth, transmits to the earth whatever light it receives from the sun. In like manner, Mary stands between God and human beings and pours His grace upon us.
Prayer: O Mary, you flood us with Christ's supernatural brightness. Grant me the graces to flee the proximate occasions of sin and remain true to my Christian vocation.
