Marie du jour 2020: 21 May

The house of Saint John becomes your only refuge
The son of Zebedee must replace Jesus…
This is the last detail given in the Gospel
Of the Queen of Heaven it says nothing further to me.
But its profound silence, O my dearest Mother
Doesn’t it reveal that the Eternal Word
Wants Himself to sing the secrets of your life
To charm your children, all the Chosen Ones in Heaven?

Saint Thérèse of Lisieux

PN 54, Why I Love You, O Mary (Pourquoi je t’aime, ô Marie)
