St. Luke: Chapter 13: 1-5
Examples inviting repentance
It was just about this time that some people arrived and told him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with that of their sacrifices. At this he said to them, “Do you suppose these Galileans who suffered like that were greater sinners than any other Galileans? They were not, I tell you. No; but unless you repent you will all perish as they did. Or those eighteen on whom the tower at Siloam fell and killed them? Do you suppose that they were more guilty than all the other people living in Jerusalem? They were not, I tell you. No; but unless you repent you will all perish as they did.”
True Devotion: No. 81, 82
We need Mary in order to die to ourselves
In order to rid ourselves of self, we must die to ourselves daily. This is to say, we must renounce the operation of the powers of our soul, and the senses of our body. We must see as if we saw not, understand as if we understood not and make use of all the things of this world, as if we made no use of them at all. This is what St. Paul calls dying daily: “Unless the grain of wheat falling in the ground die, itself remaineth alone, and bringeth forth no good fruit.” If we do not die to ourselves, and if the holiest devotions do not incline us to the necessary and useful death, we shall bring forth no fruit worth anything, and our devotion will become useless.
We must choose, therefore, among all the devotions to the Blessed Virgin, the one which draws us most toward this deaths to ourselves, inasmuch as it will be the best and most sanctifying.
