Day Six

St. Louis de Montfort Preparation:

Day Six of the 12 Preliminary Days, in which you endeavour to free yourself from the spirit of the world.

  • Prayers to be said today: Veni Creator and Ave Maris Stella
  • Choose your spiritual reading from: Matthew, Chapters 5, 6, 7; Imitation of Christ, Book I, Chapters 13, 18, 25; Book III, Chapters 10, 40
  • Your spiritual exercises: Examine your conscience, pray, practice renouncement, mortification, purity of heart; this purity is the indispensable condition for contemplating God in Heaven, to see Him on earth and to know Him by the light of faith.

“Mary is the sanctuary and the repose of the Holy Trinity, where God dwells more magnificently and more divinely than in any other place in the universe, not excepting His dwelling between the Cherubim and Seraphim.  Nor is any creature, no matter how pure, allowed to enter into that sanctuary except by a great and special privilege.” [True Devotion to Mary:  pg. 4, paragraph 5]

“…Mary has been up to this time unknown…this is one of the reasons that Jesus Christ is not known as He ought to be.  If then, as is certain, the knowledge and the kingdom of Jesus Christ are to come into the world, they will be but a necessary consequence of the knowledge and the kingdom of the most holy Virgin Mary, who brought Him into the world for the first time, and will make His second advent full of splendor.” [True Devotion to Mary:  pg. 7, paragraph 13]

Immaculate Heart Preparation:

Some highlights from the reflection for Day Six:

  • “Remember the purpose in your answer to my call – to honor, love and serve the Trinity, three in one.”
  • “Prepare yourselves for battle – the final battle for harmony and peace.  Stand strong, stand whole in unity, stand upon the promise of global peace.  It is assured by the Almighty Father.”
  • “Dear children, this means not only to be consumed yourself, but to share this spark of love.  Unity cannot be created by oneself, but by reaching for the hearts of those around you, and by grasping the heart that reaches to yours.”
  • Understanding that we depend entirely on grace, God commands us to perform our part and to cooperate with Him in the work of salvation.
  • Dear Mother, continue to intercede for this child and pray for my sanctification with me, until my whole being shall be as God wishes.
