There is an amazing, awesome place called Castel Gandolfo. It has nothing to do with the Lord of the Rings, or the White Wizard. Castel Gandolfo is the Pope’s summer home. The Pope usually goes to this beautiful villa when it’s crazy, crazy, hot in Rome. When you are walking up to this beautiful villa, you will see an amazing image of our Lady. And this image of our Lady, underneath it says, in Latin means, “My heart is vigilant.”
In the Gospel for this Sunday, Christ is calling us to always be vigilant. And so Mary is the perfect example of being vigilant. Just having her heart always pondering the Lord and thinking about Christ. My invite this Sunday is to be like Mary, who is always pondering everything about her Son in her heart. Do we do that? Reject anything that is not from Christ. Be like Mary.
