Reflection:
I entrust you to Mary of Nazareth, a young person like yourselves, whom God beheld lovingly, so she might take your hand and guide you to the joy of fully and generously responding to God’s call with the words: “Here I am” (Luke 1:38). (Pope Francis)

Prayer:
O Emmanuel, our King and Giver of Law:
come to save us, Lord our God!
