Our Lady and Holy Mass

TheHolyMassInUnionWithOurLady(2-pictures)

Montfort Father J.M. Huppers has written a wonderful little book called “The Holy Mass in Union with Our Lady”. Here is his explanatory Foreword.

Foreword

Just as this most holy Body of Jesus was given to us through Mary, so it must be offered through Her hands; and we must receive through Her hands in the Sacrament what was supplied to us by Her and was born from Her most very chaste Womb. (St. Bonaventure)

In this little booklet we present to the reader some thoughts on the role and cooperation of the Most Holy Mother of Jesus in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, as well as some indications to recognize practically and make use of this collaboration of Our Lady.

This little work can serve as spiritual reading. It can also be used for meditation, to examine more thoroughly and assimilate more the considerations and exercises which are proposed in it.

Nothing prevents us from even making use of it during the Holy Sacrifice itself, especially on the days when it is granted to us to be present at more than one Holy Mass.

In this way we shall imbue ourselves us little by little with these thoughts and with other similar ones “which the Holy Spirit will supply us” if we are very interior, mortified and faithful to the great and solid devotion which Montfort taught us. They will spontaneously return to us in spirit in our participation in the august Sacrifice. And this will be to the great benefit of God, the Most Blessed Virgin, souls, and ourselves.

It goes without saying that we do not want to impose on anyone these considerations and practices, which, verbally proposed, were already able to be of great help for many persons. They are intended for the “children and slaves of love” of the Most Blessed Virgin, who, according to the pressing recommendation of the divine Heart of Jesus to His favorite confidante, Margaret-Mary, feel an imperative need to unite themselves with their “dear Everything with Jesus” in their holiest actions and above all in the Sacrifice of our altars. Let each, besides, chose according to his attractions from the diverse practices proposed. Since we do not lose sight here of the Most Holy Mother of Jesus, we can justly refer to the “beautiful freedom of the children of God.”

Fr. Emil Neubert, Marianist

Fr. Emil Neubert was, arguably, the most extraordinary Marian writer of the twentieth century.  St. Maximilian Kolbe was so impressed with one of his books that he struck up a friendship with him.  Many people, however, have not heard of him.  Here is a good article about him.  Fortunately, Fr. Neubert also wrote an autobiography, which you can get here!  I have dedicated a Pinterest board to him where you can also get some of his previously untranslated works.  I have three more of his works in preparation.  He used to write about the Blessed Virgin for three hours a day, and he wrote books for every state of life.  His autobiography is very inspiring.  It is to be hoped that he will be canonized.

“There is not one single heroic act that we are unable to accomplish with the help of the Immaculate.”

St. Maximilian Kolbe (2/26)

“God permits that you go through a sense of being disheartened, filled with doubts and lonesomeness.  But this is always for His glory and that of His Immaculate Mother.  However, if you trust not in yourself in anything, placing instead all your confidence in our Immaculate Mother, you will always triumph, even though all of hell, the flesh, and the devil assailed you.”

“When at times I am tempted to worry, I immediately say to myself: ‘Silly one, why do you worry?  Is this your work?  If all belongs to the Immaculate, will she not attend to it?  Then let Her lead you!'”
