We realize more the tremendous tower of strength Mary is. She becomes our strength. Relying on her we have no fears. Despite our weakness we know that we are not alone. Such a person knows that in temptation their confidence will be in Mary. There is no pride or self-conceit. It is Mary who will protect them from the Evil One. We could appropriate to her the words of the Book of Wisdom. ‘She kept him safe from his enemies, protected him from their scheming.’
Our Lady will always be our strength if we want her. Let there be an effort to seek Mary in order to overcome temptations. Such a practice will help us in humility and confidence, because we will bear in mind that we are not resisting the temptations alone.
The Immaculate Way
