Jesus Christ elevates His Mother Mary to a most high place in His Life and ours. For from her flesh and from her motherhood, He came into this world to heal us and to give us the Light of Love. Also, in a way similar to how He gives us Himself from the Father, He gives us Himself through His Mother, Mary. And so, in Mary we recognize the pure goodness of Jesus Christ ever so clearly.
In drawing close to Mary, we draw close to Jesus the Christ. In becoming as a child of Mary, we recognize that we have already become adopted brothers and sisters of Jesus Christ in His glorified humanity where Love rules every aspect of our lives. We find rest in her pure, joyful and grace-filled compassion and mercy. In her smile, we see the Love and Mercy of God shining through, for she is very near to Him. He calls us through His Mother to Himself. She says, “I take you as my baby child, for the love of God works through me, and I am all “Yes” to Him who is all Love for you and for me. I love you so very much.”But, the unfathomable Love and Beauty of God is far beyond even that which we are able to see in our Mother Mary. Oh Loving Lord – you are the ultimate Essence of Beauty. For you, may our hearts also resonate like Mary’s “Yes!” and be filled with JOY.
