by Sister Mary Dennise Wagenlander, SND

Does anyone know what Marian feast is celebrated on April 26? I would venture to say that most would not know what is so special about that day. April 26 is the Feast of Our Lady of Good Counsel. This is a feast unknown by most. I happen to know about it since I took the name Dennise years ago. I was told by a friend of mine that Dennise is a Greek word for wine and it was at the wedding feast of Cana that Mary gave Jesus good counsel to change water into wine. Now most of us would admit that we need good counsel, but are you ready to receive Mary’s good counsel? “Do whatever He tells you.”

Prayer to Mary, Mother of Good Counsel

O God, you gave us Mary, Mother of Jesus Christ, your beloved Son, to be our Mother. You glorified her in a wondrous apparition as our Mother of Good Counsel. Grant that by always following her counsels we may be able to live after your own heart and arrive happily in our heavenly homeland. We pray through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
