… for nine days, she personally greeted Mary by saying a thousand Hail Marys a day in Her honour ~ The Life of Faustina Kowalska, The Authorised Autobiography, Sr. Sophia Michaelenko, CMGT
The usual Rosary of just 50 Hail Marys is the Alps for me. I can’t even manage the tiny anthill just outside our residential area, much less the Alps – in any form.
And yet, this line in the autobiography of one my favourite saints, puts out its hand and pauses my gallop across the day.
She personally greeted Mary
a 1000 Hail Marys
I just cannot do 1000. I don’t know how St. Faustina did it but I do know what I can do and what is beyond me and 1000 a day ticks the second box. As I was trying to settle on a manageable figure, it came to me to just ask God what He wanted of me.
Greet Mary, was His simple answer.
