Do you have a “dwelling place” of the Blessed Mother where you can pray and reflect? St. John Paul II said that a dwelling place for Mother Mary can be “a special corner in the home or little wayside shrines adorned with an image of the Mother of God, to chapels and churches built in her honor.” Wherever it is, place yourself near Mary’s Immaculate Heart while you are in prayer. Confide to her all of your interests and desires. Ask her to grant her graces to you and bring you closer to her Son Jesus.
