The Holy Family - Jesus, Mary, Joseph

The little bag of pearls.

One day a traveler got lost in a desert, where for two days he was deprived of any refreshment. Finally he found a tree at the foot of which a spring was gushing forth. Unfortunately the tree had no more fruit, but next to the spring was a small bag. He grabbed it and thanked God, for he thought that the bag contained peas, which someone had forgotten. But when he opened it, he found pearls of inestimable value, but unable to appease the hunger that was devouring him. The poor traveler implored God’s help. Shortly afterwards he saw a man riding a camel, approaching at full speed. It was the owner of the pearls, whose joy at finding the lost bag was inexpressible. He took pity on the poor starving man, gave him some bread and figs and took him away on his horse. On the way, he said to the traveler: “Truly it is the good God who has disposed of it in this way and His ways are admirable; He has made me lose the pearls, so that I may return to this source to save your life.”

Saved by his hat.

In Kochstedt near Strassfurt (1898) a young man took shelter during a terrible storm under a large tree. Full of terror, he fervently recommended himself to the protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Suddenly a gust of wind blew his hat off and blew him away. The young man rushed to catch it and as soon as he left the tree, lightning struck it. The gust of wind had saved the young man from certain death.

Divine providence uses the most diverse means to save those who trust in it.

Preparatory Prayer

O Jesus! We are going to walk with You on the road to Calvary which was so painful for You. Make us understand the greatness of Your sufferings, touch our hearts with tender compassion at the sight of Your torments, in order to increase in us the regret of our faults and the love we wish to have for You.
Deign to apply to all of us the infinite merits of Your Passion, and in memory of Your sorrows, show mercy to the souls in Purgatory, especially to those who are most abandoned.
O Divine Mary, who first taught us to make the Way of the Cross, obtain for us the grace to follow Jesus with the sentiments Your Heart was filled with as You accompanied Him on the road to Calvary. Grant that we may weep with You, and that we may love Your divine Son as You do. We ask this in the name of His adorable Heart. Amen.
