THIRTY-FIRST DAY

(Here we finish the explanation of all the mysteries of Our Lady)

Perseverance in the devotion to the Blessed Virgin.

 

He who endures to the end shall be saved.

Matt. 24:43.

our_mother

It is related in the Holy Scripture, in the book of Judith (Judith 7:6), that Holofernes, wanting to reduce the city of Bethulia, ordered to cut the aqueducts. Satan too, no less cunning than this other enemy of God, when he wants to capture a soul, fights first to make him lose devotion to the Mother of God, fully convinced that once cut the channel of grace, this soul infallibly falls into his hands. Satan knows that this poor creature, deprived of the friendship of Mary, will soon lose the friendship of God. How big should be our devotion to the Queen of heaven and earth, because the Lord has established her for us as the channel of all graces!

St. Francis Borgia called in question the perseverance of those who did not have a special trust in the Mother of God. One day, questioning novices of his Order, to know which saint each of them had more devotion, he found that many do not feel a filial love for Mary. St. Francis immediately warns those who were responsible for the Novitiate, advising them to keep an eye on these young religious. The event justified the fears of this holy man: all these unfortunate men lost the grace of their vocation, and none of them was persevering; as to prove by a sad experience that devotion to our august Mother is a sure sign of perseverance in virtue.
