Mary's Call to Her Loving Children: Devotion to the Dying
By Mary Potter (1847 – 1913)https://archive.org/details/MarysCall/page/n9/mode/2up
Reader ! stay from the contemplation of that last Day of Retribution and consider — You have got time, you live in God's time of mercy ; you may save souls every hour — might we not say it, every minute of your lives ; and you are perhaps wasting precious time, time so precious because every moment may be used in bringing the Precious Blood to our own souls and the souls of others. Let us realize what we can do ; let us make acts of Faith, Hope, and Charity; let us visit the Precious Blood, let us take that Precious Blood into our hearts, let our hearts be as vials in which we carry the Precious Blood to apply to the souls of others.
Think of what you might do, think of how you may spiritually carry the Precious Blood to souls,and heal their wounds. If you have love in your hearts you have Jesus, you have His life ; you may be as Mary, your Mother, dispensatrix of the Precious Blood. What grand work,what a happy life, what a happy end ! Holy Spirit ! inspire thy children ; make us earnest, zealous ; make us live as Mary would have us — loving souls, healing them, saving them, and for all eternity have the happiness of claiming as our own the souls we saved by aiding Mary to bring the Precious Blood to them.
2 Corinthians 4:3-4
And if our gospel be also hid, it is hid to them that are lost, In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of unbelievers, that the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should not shine unto them.
