The Perfect Disposition for Holy Week

How should we approach the beginning of Holy Week?

Fr. Mark-Mary explains that following Mary’s example is the most powerful way to enter the mystery of Christ’s Passion. We should be open, available, and receptive to receiving the Bridegroom.

Fr. Mark-Mary encourages us to ask Mary to guide us into this receptive state. As Jesus sacrifices for our salvation, our most faithful response echoes Mary’s surrender: “Be done unto me according to your word.”
