Our Lady Seat of Wisdom

 
 
 
Our Lady Seat of Wisdom is my patroness in The Catholic Lady apostolate.  Her image is my favorite.  I love how she holds the Christ Child at once protectively and reverently.  I also like how even with closed eyes, Our Lady exhibits remarkable confidence.
 
 
 
From The Love of Eternal Wisdom by St. Louis de Montfort:

Four Effects of Wisdom:

1. Wisdom gives man light to know the truth but a wonderful capacity to make truth known to others.
2. Wisdom gives man a relish for things of God.
3. Wisdom pours into his heart ineffable joy, sweetness and peace even in midst of hardest trials and tribulations.
4. Wisdom sets men on fire and makes them do great things for the glory of God and the salvation of souls.


 How to Obtain Wisdom:
 
1. Ardent desire, fostered by the keeping of the Commandments
2. Persevering prayer
3. Universal mortification;
4. Tender and true devotion to the Blessed Virgin



“If we really wish to obtain life everlasting let us acquire knowledge of Divine Wisdom; if we wish to reach perfect sanctity on earth, let us know Eternal Wisdom; if we wish to possess the root of immortality in our heart, let us have in our mind knowledge of Eternal Wisdom.   To know Jesus Christ, Eternal Wisdom, is to know enough.  To know everything and not to know him is to know nothing.”

  1. Good morning Colette,

    I want to encourage you in what you are doing. I am a woman of 'a certain age', Catholic, wife, mother and grandmother. I adopted this apostolate a long time ago and was so happy to be following your blog for quite a while now. Young wives and mothers need living examples of what it means to be a Godly woman. Your gentle approach to all things feminine, Catholic and Godly are a breath of fresh air to womanhood in this day and age. Keep up the good work, and know that I am here encouraging and praying for you. Pax Christi.
