Ponder:What excess emotional baggage, material junk, or even digital clutter can I eliminate from my life today so that my heart will more closely resemble the heart of Mary – empty, pure, grateful, and ready to say yes to God?
Pray:Dearest Blessed Mother, give me a heart that is open and receptive to God’s gifts, His love, His pruning, and new life itself.
