Our Lady of the Rosary
There has been a calm in my heart for several weeks as I prepared for this consecration. But the last couple of days I noticed that I fell into some old patterns. Bursts of frustration, anger and ill temper. At first I was confused as to what was happening. Then it hit me. The Devil.
He really was not happy with how things were going. He was losing traction in my life and like a spoiled child he was going around and stamping his feet and throwing things. He knows me well, that one. He knows every chink in my armour and how to open it up to do the most damage.
For my part, confession, prayer and Holy Communion. I know that I won't be perfect from this moment on. I do know and believe that I am a child of God and that He and I share a Mother! He choose her and he gave her to me. I for my part have placed everything that I am and hope to be in her care.
She knows me better than the devil does. She knows the good and the bad. She knows my struggles, confusion, and hurts. She helps me stand at the foot of the cross and embrace it with all my being. Our hearts are united. She has given us the perfect weapon, The Most Holy Rosary!
