Turn to our Blessed Mother in confident prayer. She holds you close to her Immaculate Heart and will direct you to her Son, Jesus. She is the perfect Mother, the Mother of All Grace. Trust in Her maternal care and intercession. She knows how to unlock the graces of the Mercy of her Son. And she longs to do so for you, her precious child (See Diary #11).
Sincerely reflect, today, upon your relationship with Mother Mary, the Mother of Mercy. Do you trust in her maternal care and intercession? If you are not wholeheartedly in love with our Blessed Mother and if you do not completely trust in her motherly care, spend time today opening your heart more fully to all that God wants to bless you with through her care. Don’t be afraid to turn to her. She will point you to her Son.
Dearest Mother, my Queen. The Lord has entrusted to you the storehouse of His Mercy. The King of Kings has set you on a throne and given you charge of His Mercy. May I come to you, this day and always, seeking that which you wish to bestow upon me. Thank you for bringing me the Divine Mercy of your Son. Dearest Mother, pray for me. Jesus, I trust in You.
