The Blessed Mother is a tower of strength for us. St. John Vianney: "Struggles put us at the foot of the Cross, and the Cross at the gate of heaven" and we will find Mary both at the foot of the Cross and at the Gate of Heaven. Saint Bernard: "Our Lady's sufferings amount to more than all of the suffering of all of the rest of the Saints combined." The dead boy in the Gospel reading is symbolic of a soul in moral sin and a public sinner at that (the whole town was there to see him dead). Both repentance AND perseverence are necessary for salvation. After confession, be prepared to fight battles against temptation. A consideration by St. Alphonsus Liguori of the spiritual challenges faced by relapsing sinners. A reflection on Sampson and the folley of thinking we will always have recourse to confession after falling into sin. Review the battle plan for overcoming habitual sin. The boy in the Gospel was restored to life through the intercession of his mother. Always have devotion and recourse to the Blessed Mother.
