You will show me the path to life; You will fill me with joy in Your presence.  – Ps 16:11

Reflection.  Jesus came to us, subject to all the limitations of being human.  From the beginning, He felt the discomfort of the cold weather, and experienced the pangs of hunger.  His loving Mother shielded Him from needless suffering.  She will shield you as well.

Prayer.  Teach me, Lord, to depend on Your love and Your Mother’s love for me.
