One Minute Marian Reflection – 25 May “Mary’s Month” Friday of the Seventh Week in Ordinary Time, Year B
Those who love me I also love and those who seek me, find me…Proverbs 8:17
REFLECTION – “MARY: OUR MOTHER – “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 everything that happens to you; honour her and love her. No one will do it for you or as well as you.”…” St Josemaría Escrivá (1902-1975) Mother of God and our Mother,” Friends of God, 293.
Let us offer to our Mother today:
Many affectionate thoughts and prayers, by saying “Mary, my mother” each time we pause in our work.
PRAYER – Holy Almighty Father, grant us the grace to understand the immense love You have given us, in granting us the Mother of Your Divine Son, as our Mother too. Holy Mary, Mother of God and our Mother, teach us, help us, show us the way, as all mothers do. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son and our Saviour, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God with our Father, forever, amen.
