Begin with Prayer, then read Hebrews 10:22-25
Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.
Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
Read the Scripture again to yourself. Notice how you feel.
Share a word, phrase, or sense that touches you.
Listen to the Reflection or Read the Script.
Simply use the questions below as starters to guide your sharing.
What part of the Litany touches you most deeply?
Which line is most encouraging for you?
In which area of your life do you most need to trust God?
Which concept of deliverance or trust is most challenging for you to believe or accept?
How has God used others to ‘spur you on to love and good deeds’ or give encouragement and support?
When have you been used by God to give that for others?
If time allows, pray the Litany again as a group.
Ponder Marian Mothers Charter No. 8
A Christian mother reaches out to support and encourage all mothers
and is open to receive the same from others.
“ I thank my God whenever I think of you … my prayer is that your love for each other may increase more and more …” Philippians 1:3-11
Pray with and for each other then conclude with this prayer.
Mary our Mother and Guide, we call upon your intercession & protection.
Help us through your merits and prayers to grow ever more like you in loving and serving your Son Jesus in our daily lives.
Pray that the Holy Spirit help us love those who feel lost, outcast or estranged from your Son and His Church.
Help us make time for the most needy in our homes yet still have time for the unassuming quiet ones.
May we have your trust and faith in God and be your gentle presence of Divine mercy toward others.
May we build one another up in Christ and always know your kindness as we commit our lives, families, communities and world to your care and prayer. Amen
