Somewhere in the hills of Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvannia.
So often we look past the wisdom of Mary, but it is through our dearest Mother that we find ourselves, for she is just like us. Through her despair, courage, and faithfulness, we find our similarities, for we have both wept with tears of sorrow and tears of joy. And solely because of this, it is of the upmost importance to understand what is to be learned from a Mother so wise.
“Do whatever He tells you” is the fruit of Mary’s wisdom.
To do whatever He tells us, requires a listening of the heart, where Christ speaks most tenderly, moving us to love, to forgive, to ask for forgiveness, to be so moved to compassion for one another that we forget ourselves.
Never let evil be spoken past your lips, say the good things others need to hear, get rid of all the malice, bitterness, jealousy, hostility and anger and replace it with kindness, forgiveness, and compassion. This is the whatever of “do whatever He tells you.”
Be who you are and be that well.
But wherever you go, do what He tells you.
