The Holy Family flee as refugees to Egypt.
In this sorrow we pray for the grace to receive undreamt of graces through Mary’s Sorrowful Immaculate Heart.
Now after they had left, an angel of the lord appeared to `Joseph in a dream and said, ‘get up, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt, and remain there until, until I tell you, for Herod is about to search for the child, to destroy him.’ Then Joseph got up, took the child and his mother by night, and went to Egypt, and remained there until the death of Herod. This was to fulfill what had been spoken by the Lord through the prophet, ‘Out of Egypt I have called my son.’ (Matthew 2: 13 – 15).
Mother Mary, as I meditate on the image of your sorrow help me to understand your heart-felt love for me. Show me how to know and love Jesus in the heartfelt Yes! of your loving heart. I lift up to you all refugees. May I see in those I meet something of the afflicted state you and Joseph were in with your newborn Son when you fled the threat of destruction and violence. Through your prayer may Jesus deliver us from lovelessness, betrayal and infidelity. Help me, Mother Mary, to walk ever more fully in the ways of compassion and love.
