Marian Month/ Mary: Our Mother (May 25)

"Find out for yourself by personal experience the meaning of Mary's maternal love. It is not enough just to know that she is our Mother, and to think and talk about her as such. She is your Mother and you are her child. She loves you as if you were her only child in this world. Treat her accordingly. Tell her about every¬thing that happens to you; honor her and love her. No one will do it for you or as well as you."

Learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for your souls. (Mt 11:29)

Reflection: I am sure that Mary’s actual life must have been a very simple one.
Instead of thinking of her as unapproachable, we must realize how truly imitable she was, how outstanding were her virtues, and how she lived by faith as we do.
- St. Theresa of Lisieux

Prayer: O Mary, your life and virtues are a beacon for us in the stormy night of this world. Help me to try to imitate one virtue of yours each day, starting with your blessed simplicity.
