MARY: LOSING AND FINDING THE CHILD JESUS "The Mother of God, who looked for her Son so anxiously when he was lost (through no fault of her own) and experienced such great joy in finding him, will help us retrace our steps and put right whatever may be necessary when, because of our careless­ness or our sins, we have been unable to recognize Christ. With her help, we will know the happiness of holding him in our arms once more and telling him we will never lose him again." Let us offer to our Mother today: A good, sincere, sorrowful confession of our sins and failures, in the sacrament of Penance.
