Memorial of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Glory to God in the highest
Media resources tend to shower glory on athletes, celebrities, and winning candidates. This worldly praise and honor doesn’t resemble the divine attribute of glory much. God chooses to share a reflection of divine glory with a surprisingly different cast of characters: the meek, the lowly, the little ones. This glory gives the saints their radiant haloes and makes people with loving ways shine when they walk in the room. On this final Saturday of Rosary Month, pray the Glorious Mysteries for more radiant ones to bless our world!
Today’s readings: Ephesians 4:7-16; Luke 13:1-9 (478). “He . . . is the same one who ascended far above all the heavens, so that he might fill all things.”
