Feast of the Most Holy Name of the Blessed Virgin Mary

"In fact, the more I looked at it, the more it seemed to me that God virtually always comes to us through some creature. And when he does that, some glow of his glory is left on the creature, like the radiance on Moses' face (cf. Ex. 34:29-35). But at the same time it remains clear the glory is God's, not something the creature could claim for himself." 

Mary, you shone with the glory of God, 
never claiming merit for your virtues. 
Help me to always deflect praise and glory to our Father.
