In her apparitions to St. Catherine Labouré, the Blessed Virgin Mary pointed to the altar where the tabernacle was and said, “Come to the foot of this altar. Here, graces will be given to all who ask for them with confidence and fervor.” Catherine’s new mission was to spread this promise of God and Mary to the world. And she went on to carry out half a century of faithful service to the elderly and infirm as a Daughter of Charity. Mary motivates us to encounter her Son in the Eucharist and then, filled with God’s grace, to go out and act concretely.
