Mary is like the moon. You can stare at the moon all day and not have to worry about getting burned. She is a reflection of the powerful light of Christ. Look to your beloved Mother and she will never let you down.
The Church is in crisis mode. The answer is not to abandon Jesus because of Judas. The choice is not to jump ship because there are rough seas. We will not stray from the narrow path God has laid before us. We will remain strong.
1. Look to Mary. Jesus is the sun. Mary is the moon. You cannot stare at the sun all day or your eyes will burn. You can stare at the moon all day because it is a reflection of the light of the sun.
2. Pray for our leaders. Pray for Pope Francis. Pray for your local priests, especially your bishop. The Church is in a time of crisis right now. We need our leaders to lead.
3. Never lose hope. Jesus Christ has won the ultimate victory. Never forget that men.
