OUR PETITIONS RAISED IN PRAYER AND THE HANDS THAT MAKE THEM PURE

The Mother of God grasps our heartfelt, disordered, tarnished petitions. When the purity of her hands touch them, all the discoloration and tainted motives hidden in them are made clean. Our Mother then presents them in their purest form to the holiness of God.

SHE DOES NOT OFFER GOD A SOLUTION TO OUR PETITIONS. WE KNOW THIS BECAUSE AT THE WEDDING FEAST AT CANA, SHE SAW A NEED, SILENTLY HELD IT  AS SHE CARRIED IT TO HER SON THEN SIMPLY TOLD HIM,
 "THEY HAVE NO MORE WINE". 

SHE THEN LEFT THE PETITION THERE, WITH HIM.

SHE WAITED FOR HIS REPLY.

And so it is when she receives our petitions. She quietly holds them, makes them pure, speaks them to her Son. 

And she waits.

He replies.

Mary then dispenses His graces and His reply is made manifest in our lives. "Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean." Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. "I do will it. Be clean." (Matthew 8:2)
