Day to Honor Our Blessed Mother
|Fr. Myers, O.P.|
Yesterday was no exception. The day began with a welcome from the prior, Very Rev. Edward T. Myers, O.P. He was very gracious. I also know him as the religious assistant to the St. Martin de Porres Chapter, in Natick.
Next, Miss Catherine Perrotti, O.P., led us in prayer and singing. The main speaker was Father Thomas Petri, O.P.. His approach was through Mary, you find her Son. The title of his talk was, "Mary: Disciple of Her Son." His spin was different. We were led to see Jesus as a mother would see a son, as a good Jewish daughter to Yahweh, as someone graced to share in the Redemption. I'm still reflecting upon these various images and reflections.
Father Petri also heard Confessions and celebrated Mass. Of course we prayed the Rosary, during Confession. It's simply, a simple day of recollection, focusing on Mary. That's enough.
