MARY: HER FLIGHT TO EGYPT WITH JOSEPH AND THE CHILD JESUS "The mystery of Mary helps us to see that in order to approach God, we must become little. Christ said to his disciples: ‘Be­lieve me, unless you become like little children again, you shall not enter the kingdom of heaven.' "To become children, we must renounce our pride and self-suf­ficiency, recognizing that we can do nothing by ourselves. We must realize that we need grace and the help of God our Father to find our way and keep to it." Let us offer to our Mother today: A visit to a lonely person to share the joy of trusting in God alone.
