Here are this week’s must-reads:

+ “You must know that when you pray ‘hail Mary,’ she immediately greets you… If you greet her, she will answer you right away!” —St. Bernardine of Siena

+ “To ask for Our Lady’s prayers does not reduce our trust in Jesus, but we’re uniting our trust to her trust.” — Fr. Mike Schmitz

+ “Mary’s request, “Do whatever he tells you,” is the principle for our life in Christ. Mary does not try to run the show; she does not need to be intricately involved in the miracle. She simply tells the servants to listen to Jesus, placing all the attention on her Son. This is the “luminous principle,” according to John Paul II.” — Tim Gray

+ “Did you know that each month of the year is dedicated to a special devotion within the Church? January is dedicated to the Holy Name of Jesus. February is dedicated to the Holy Family…” – here

+ Here are some ideas of how you can decorate a prayer space in your home this month!

+ “Jesus, help me to simplify my life by learning what you want me to be – and becoming that person.”– St. Thérèse of Lisieux

+ “The spiritual life is better as a sit-down dinner than a drive-through.” — Claire Dwyer

+ “If Jesus spent 8 hours a day, every day for 3 years with his disciples, he would have spent over 8,000 hours with them. And after all that time, they still had major gaps! One hour a week will never change us — we need a life that abides in him, with the support of others.” — Rich ViIlodas

+ “He leads me beside still waters, He restores my soul.” — Psalm 23:2

+ “I was on a podcast recently that discussed marriage, play, intimacy and family. I shared how I think being “easy” is a gift to your marriage. Easy to love, easy to let things go, easy to see the best in your spouse. Easy to laugh, kiss, ask for help…” – Kristin Andrus

+ “Remember, marriage is a sacrament of discipleship. It’s a sacrament of service.” — Fr. Mike Schmitz
