Something More on Mater

Under the pressure of over-activity which at times consumes us, disturbs us, or scatters our energies in doing what is visible and accidental let us come to our Mater.

She is the Mother of the Invisible and the Mother of the Essential.
Let us ask her to detach us, to free us from all that is not important,
to lead us on, and to fix our gaze upon the Invisible which her own eyes look upon.

May she give us the right understanding of the Essential and a hunger for it.
One thing alone is necessary: the will of God and the work of God's love.
May Mater give us this singleness of vision so that we, too, may see the Invisible and the Essential in all.

There is a problem so that it is not possible to attach an image today, but look back to last Saturday's Feast of Mater and contemplate her image. The above was given us on Saturday without a source, but it is adapted from a Circular Letter to the whole Society of the Sacred Heart written by Reverend Mother de Lescure.

Sister, thank you very much for drawing our sttention to the fact that Mater is mother of the invisible and the essential. This is a great help to focus.

Moira, I am glad to have your comment. Mater is one to help us learn to focus on the essential and the invisible.
