Yes, this is it! We have nothing to worry about, any more, ever! Not only did Jesus, Mary, and St. Therese tell that to Marcel several times, even devoting whole arguments and conversations to this purpose (that he and we should no longer worry), not only did St. John Paul II take up Jesus' frequent advice (Be not afraid!), not only is it true that with Mary as our Mother it makes no sense to worry . . . but this is the day Jesus gives us another spiritual father (besides our infinitely loving Heavenly Father) - St. Padre Pio who loves, loves, loves to take care of us and all those we love!
So let's give it our best shot, let's not worry any more ever. If we find ourselves failing, we have the Little Way to fall back on, and dear Blessed Mother's perfect suggestion: we can repeat the easy prayer: "Little Jesus, I offer You this worry as a sacrifice," and by this means save many souls. But the best part is, as she said, to let ourselves experience His peace after we offer Him our worries.
And now, just to make sure we've begun our third novena, a quick refresher: Little Flower, in this hour, show your power!
Oh, and one of her very favorite prayers, which we've adopted as our own:
Draw me, we will run!!!
