Pope Francis' Prayer Intention for February 2016
"Mary is also the one who obtained mercy in a particular and exceptional way, as no other person has. At the same time, still in an exceptional way, she made possible with the sacrifice of her heart her own sharing in God’s mercy. This sacrifice is intimately linked with the cross of her Son, at the foot of which she was to stand on Calvary."
John Paul II, Dives in Misericordia
