I'd like to thank Catholic Fire for tagging me for the Four Words Meme. She gave me the following words to reflect on: Meekness, Modesty, Miracles, and Mary.
Meekness: The Lord himself said, "Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the land". Meekness is a beautiful state in the eyes of God, and the only thing that truly matters is the way God sees us. Tomorrow, live your day each moment realizing that each fault you make is recorded by your guardian angel. St. John Vianney, I think, said that thought of his guardian angel inspired him to live each day to the best of his ability.
Modesty: It is a word often lacking in nearly all facets of society today. Modesty is a necessity for living the Christian lifesytle. We must follow the example of Our King, Jesus Christ, who was modest and pure. As He said, "Blessed are the pure of heart for they shall see God." And, purity is a sister to modesty. Without modesty, one falls prey to the attacks of the devil.
Miracles: They are often occuring in our word not just in Fatima and Lourdes but in the lives of ordinary people. And yet science and secular society call them by scientific terms. It's what they did when a heavenly light spread over Europe before the outbreak of WWII, which Mary said would be a sign of another war. Her words in Fatima were overlooked as scientists called it a massive aurora borealis. Miracles are beautiful and everywhere, but few people take time and look at them. Do you study the innocence and beautiful of human life in a child or the beauty of Creation? Those are miracles from God.
Mary: I could elaborate for hours on the great Mother of God. She is our guide and intercessor. As Jesus gave Mary to St. John while on the Cross, He also gave Mary as a mother to the entire Church; she is our mother too. And as a Mother, she cares deeply for our souls and wishes for us to stop sinning for our sins piereced the fragile body of her Son! She is beautiful, sinless in the Immaculate Conception, and she was Assumed into Heaven. May she intercede for all mankind! May all those that attack Mary repent for their horrible sins!

I choose the words: peace, perserverance, pride, power
