Ponder This

"The holiness of the Church depends essentially on union with Christ and on being open to the mystery of grace that operates in the hearts of believers. Therefore, I invite all the faithful to nurture an intimate relationship with Christ, Teacher and Pastor of his people, by imitating Mary who kept the divine mysteries in her heart and pondered them constantly (cfr. Lk. 2:19)."

From Pope Benedict XVI's Message for 43rd Day of Prayer for Vocations.
