Coming back from the first Rosary at Dawn, we had adoration. I read a sentence that helps me every day when I get up. It said, “Ad majora natus sum,” which literally translates to “I was born for greater things.” It’s a sentence that the ancients used to say when they wanted to reject magnanimously what they thought was mediocre, vulgar or evil. I was born for greater things!
Why has it helped me so much? Because in prayer I understood that I have to turn everything I do, especially getting up at five o’clock in the morning, into a “sacrifice of praise.” I have to elevate that action that is so hard for me into something great. God asks this sacrifice of me because He will do something great with it. I finished prayer sure of this: “Ad majora natus sum.”
