Our Lady of Victory

Our sovereign queen knows our situation in the midst of the mess. She sees our untouchable beauty and holiness when we cannot. The smoke of our sins does not hinder her sight. Mary knows that God can create harmony out of chaos. She defeated darkness with her love during the Passion, and she continues to win again and again as Our Lady of Victory. Christ is the living torch bearing the flames of love that transform the world.

We sometimes fear the wildfire of light within our souls. But those who choose to follow Christ closely become engulfed in the purifying fire of his Spirit. With burning hearts, we are meant to be fearless: igniting every thought, word, action, and situation with God’s love, giving glory to his name.
