Novena to Mary Help of Christians Day 2
Novena to Mary Help of Christians Day 2 (May 16)
(The reading for Days 2 to 9 are from the section entitled “Mary, the young woman of Nazareth” in Christus Vivit, Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation to young people and the entire people of God.)
In the heart of the Church, Mary shines forth. She is the supreme model for a youthful Church that seeks to follow Christ with enthusiasm and docility. While still very young, she accepted the message of the angel, yet she was not afraid to ask questions (Luke1:34). With open heart and soul, she replied, “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord” (Luke1:38). (Paragraph # 43)
3 Hail Mary’s
Mary, Help of Christians, pray for us.
