Topic: Humility of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Quote: St. Bernardine of Siena; "The Blessed Virgin had always the majesty of God, and her own nothingness, present to her mind." St. Alphonsus di Liguori, The Glories of Mary, 466.
Meditation: "On another occaision Our Lord showed St. Bridget two ladies. The one was all pomp and vanity: 'She,' He said, 'is Pride; but the other one whom thou seest with her head bent down, courteous towards all, having God alone in her mind, and considering herself as no one, is Humility, her name is Mary.'" St. Alphonsus di Liguori, The Glories of Mary, 469.
Resolution: I will try to practice 'courteousness towards all' in the manner of the Blessed Virign Mary. By my courteous behavior, I will practice the humility of the Blessed Mother.

I thought this was a particularly appropriate quote, meditation, and resolution for a lenten reflection. (HT: to Helen) May God Bless You in Your Day!
