Friends of the Rosary:

Humility is the foundation of all virtues, said St. Augustine. If we are arrogant, ignorant, and unable to forgive, we fall and poison our souls.

In the passage of Acts of the Apostles (Acts 3:13-15, 17-19) that we read yesterday, St. Peter said that the Author of Life was put to death out of ignorance.

People at that time denied the Holy and the Righteous One. Today it isn’t much different.

With our offenses and insults, we crucify the Holy One. Ignorance doesn’t absolve the sin. Modern society has excluded the Divinity from its life and moreover threatens to suffocate holiness as a virtue.

The first joyful mystery of today refers to the humility of Mary.

Our Mother in Heaven, co-redeemer, and mediatrix of all grace, will help us to get rid of all ignorance and unforgiveness.

Ave Maria!
Jesus, I Trust In You!
