Invitation to work.

Apostle to the nations – St. Paul wrote, “He who does not want to work, let him not eat” (2 Thess. 3:10). It is known that the Indian sages forbade boys to eat when they did nothing for themselves or their parents. At first, he was reprimanded, and later, he was given sticks, and after the third reprimand, if he did not improve, he was sent into exile. To talk about laziness, but on the contrary, about the need to work in the field of faith, to work on your sanctification, improvement, and acquisition of new virtues and merits.

The month of May is the month of the Virgin Mary. Since the Middle Ages, the Church has been praying a litany to the Virgin Mary this month, which we call Loreto after the famous Italian Marian pilgrimage site of Loreto. Even though centuries have passed and many titles, the attributes we give in the Virgin Mary have lost their temporality, and young people in particular no longer understand them or seem unfashionable. Still, we want to pay more attention to them for our benefit.

May Day Pope Pius XII in 1956 he declared St. Josef-Worker. From IV. century, we meet with the respect of St. There was not a single word recorded for Joseph, a sentence in the Gospels, which would be said. However, we know that he was a caring partner to the Virgin Mary; before the world, she was a real foster father and child, Jesus. After the proclamation, when the angel told him not to be afraid to marry Mary as his wife (cf. Mt 1:20), he takes on a beautiful mission to work for Jesus here on earth, and thus to prove his faithfulness to God in silent work.

The Lord Jesus told his natives in the synagogue, “They will worship the prophet everywhere, but not in his homeland and in his house” (Matt. 13:57). To despise someone hurts and insults. And the expected Messiah. He will not convince them with his words or deeds. They look at him only with natural eyes, and therefore the evangelist Matthew remarked, “And because of their unbelief he did not work many miracles there” (Mt 13:18). We know that the Lord Jesus is very grateful to the mother and foster parent for their proven good. Their intercession in the kingdom of God is great. That is why the Church has been paying attention to the Virgin Mary and St. Joseph. We do not worship them, but we turn to them for intercession with the Lord Jesus in many devotions. Yes, we also pray directly to the Lord Jesus, but we also use this opportunity, and through them, we desire our work to transform our activity into a reward from the Lord Jesus. We have much evidence that when we call on the Virgin Mary and St. Joseph for help and protection, we are not without grace. Thus, we realize that it pays to pray, ask, that is, to work on our sanctification, obtain graces for our lives here on earth, and through these saints.

We used to decorate with spring flowers, paintings, statues, altars of the Virgin Mary and in larger numbers and more often visit both pilgrimage Marian sites and our churches during May. This month, we pay special attention to the Loreto Litany, where we utter various adjectives and titles of the Virgin Mary fifty times. So, we pay homage to her and at the same time work on our sanctification. The example of the Virgin Mary does not lose its significance and value even today, in the time of advanced civilization.

We, too, want to notice the individual titles, think about them, and explain them, perhaps a little spoken today, but the same effective meaning when we follow it in its humility and humiliation. When we stand at the beginning of these thoughts, it is like a girl who wants to bring a flower to her mother from the first spring flowers. The girl feels happy during the activity. It is tireless in collecting flowers. And when she attaches a flower to a flower, she thinks of her mother, to whom she wants to give a flower out of love. The little girl knows that mom will make her very happy. What can such a child give more to his mother? After all, his mother is just waiting for this. Nothing more can and can’t give her a girl. Our activity is similar to a girl. We still feel sons and daughters of the Virgin Mary. The Lord Jesus reminded us of this on the cross: “Behold, your mother” (Jn 19:27). To notice our heavenly Mother. Therefore, we want to offer our hearts willingly at every thought. We realize that we cannot add anything to the glory of the Virgin Mary for her fame for her faithfulness to the Son. Despite this knowledge, our voluntary participation in her devotions, prayers, and reflections in the Loreto Litany is an expression of our active love for the Virgin Mary. We know that she enjoys this activity and reasonably asks us for blessings, graces from her Son, and all that is necessary. for us and those we will think about. When we fulfill this commitment, we will certainly have the reward that the Lord Jesus has given not only to his mother but also to his foster parent, St. Joseph.

We don’t just want our hands laid and waiting. We know that either or with, and he is conquered by violence, and only therapists seize him. Our violence, our increased respect for the Virgin Mary, and our more frequent prayers and reflections on her life will be rewarded. We believe that her love will be even more evident in our lives.
