“Mary’s Month” – 4 May – The Watchful Guardian of the Family

“Mary’s Month” – 4 May – Thoughts of Mary

The Watchful Guardian of the Family
Moments with Saint Pope John XXIII (1881-1963)

“The family is a most precious gift.
Founded by divine decree on the differing and complementary characteristics of the husband and wife, it finds in the wife, a watchful guardian.
We beg women, therefore, to love the family, understood as the natural setting for the growth of the human personality and the God-given shelter in which the passions of life are soothed and sweetened, the stirrings of unruly desires are stilled and the influence of evil example opposed.

This sanctuary is threatened by so many insidious attacks.
Propaganda, at times unrestrained, makes use of the formidable power of the press, entertainments and of amusements, to scatter the fatal seeds of corruption, especially among our young people.
The family must defend itself and the women must play their part in this struggle, courageously, with a sense of their responsibility, never wearied of watching and correcting and teaching the difference between good and evil.
When necessary, they must avail themselves of the protection offered by the laws of the State.

The Gospel … records the words of an unknown woman …. “Blessed is the womb that bore you and the breasts that suckled you!” (Lk 11:28).
These words very rightly referred to Mary but the same might be said of all mothers, if their children, on the hard, rough ways of this life, know how to bear themselves like true Christians, in accordance with the teachings they have received.
May all mothers, turn to her, the Mother of God, as their model and guide!”may all mothers turn to her - st pope john XXIII 4 may 2020

1 January – The Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God and the Octave Day of the Nativity of the Lord

1 January – The Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God and the Octave Day of the Nativity of the Lordoctave-day-mary-mother-of-god-2016jpg

Today the Church celebrates the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God, our Lady’s greatest title.   This feast is the octave of Christmas.   In the modern Roman Calendar only Christmas and Easter enjoy the privilege of an octave.   One of the earliest titles given by Christians to the Blessed Virgin was Theotokos“God-bearer.”   We celebrate her as the Mother of God because, in bearing Christ, she bore the fullness of the Godhead within her.icon mary and jesus

In fact, the Church regards the Solemnity of Mary, the Mother of God, as so important that it is a Holy Day of Obligation in most countries.   On this day, we are reminded of the role that the Blessed Virgin played in the plan of our salvation.   Christ’s Birth was made possible by Mary’s fiat:  “Be it done unto me according to Thy word.”

“Mary, the all-holy ever-virgin Mother of God, is the masterwork of the mission of the Son and the Spirit in the fullness of time.   For the first time in the plan of salvation and because His Spirit had prepared her, the Father found the dwelling place where His Son and His Spirit could dwell among men.   In this sense the Church’s Tradition has often read the most beautiful texts on wisdom in relation to Mary.   Mary is acclaimed and represented in the liturgy as the “Seat of Wisdom.”

Catechism of the Catholic Church 721

As we begin another year, we draw inspiration from the selfless love of the Theotokos, who never hesitated to do the will of God.   And we trust in her prayers to God for us, that we might, as the years pass, become more like her.

52nd Annual World Day of Prayer for Peace: Feast day dedicated to peace. It first observed on 1 January 1968, proclaimed by Pope Paul VI. It was inspired by the encyclical Pacem in Terris by Pope John XXIII and with reference to Paul’s encyclical Populorum Progressio. Our Holy Fathers have used this day to make magisterial declarations relevant to the social doctrine of the Church on such topics as the United Nations, human rights, women’s rights, labour unions, economic development, the right to life, international diplomacy, peace in the Holy Land, globalisation, migrants, refugees and terrorism.

One Minute Reflection – 1 January 2018 – The Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God, the Octave Day of the Nativity of Our Lord and the first day of the Month of the Most Holy Name of Jesus

But Mary kept all these things, pondering them in her heart.…Luke 2:19

REFLECTIONS – “Today’s liturgy celebrates the solemnity of the Mother of God.
Mary is the one who was chosen to be Mother of the Redeemer, sharing intimately in his mission.
In the light of Christmas, the mystery of her divine motherhood is illumined.
Mary, Mother of Jesus who was born in the Bethlehem cave,
is also the Mother of every man and woman who comes into the world.
How is it possible not to commend to her the year that is beginning,
to implore a time of serenity and peace for all humanity?
On the day when this new year begins under the blessed gaze of the Mother of God,
let us invoke the gift of peace for each one and all.”…St Pope John Paul – 1997mary is the one who was chosen - st john paul - 1 jan 2018

PRAYER – God, our Father, since You gave mankind a saviour through blessed Mary, virgin and mother, grant that we may feel the power of her intercession when she pleads for us with Jesus Christ, Your Son, the author of life, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, God forever and ever, amen.mary mother of god pray for us - 1 jan 2018

1 January 2018 – The Solemnity of Mary, the Mother of God

1 January 2018 – The Solemnity of Mary, the Mother of God

Start the New Year With Jesus’ Mother—and Our Own

In the early centuries of the Church, once Christmas began to be celebrated as its own feast on 25 December (having originally been celebrated with the Feast of the Epiphany, on 6 January, the Octave (eighth day) of Christmas, 1 January took on a special meaning. In the East, and throughout much of the West, it became common to celebrate a feast of Mary, the Mother of God, on this day. This feast was never established in the universal calendar of the Church, however, and a separate feast, celebrating the Circumcision of Our Lord Jesus Christ (which would have taken place a week after His birth), eventually took hold of 1 January. With the revision of the liturgical calendar the Feast of the Circumcision was set aside, and the ancient practice of dedicating 1 January to the Mother of God was revived—this time, as a universal feast.
One of the earliest titles given by Christians to the Blessed Virgin was Theotokos—”God-bearer.” We celebrate her as the Mother of God, because, in bearing Christ, she bore the fullness of the Godhead within her. As we begin another year, we draw inspiration from the selfless love of the Theotokos, who never hesitated to do the will of God. And we trust in her prayers to God for us, that we might, as the years pass, become more like her. O Mary, Mother of God, pray for us!Mary2017_1100x754

HOMILY OF HIS HOLINESS POPE FRANCIS

Vatican Basilica
Sunday, 1st January 2017

“Mary treasured all these things and pondered them in her heart! (Lk 2:19).   In these words, Luke describes the attitude with which Mary took in all that they had experienced in those days.   Far from trying to understand or master the situation, Mary is the woman who can treasure, that is to say, protect and guard in her heart, the passage of God in the life of his people.   Deep within, she had learned to listen to the heartbeat of her Son, and that in turn taught her, throughout her life, to discover God’s heartbeat in history.   She learned how to be a mother and in that learning process she gave Jesus the beautiful experience of knowing what it is to be a Son.   In Mary, the eternal Word not only became flesh, but also learned to recognise the maternal tenderness of God.   With Mary, the God-Child learned to listen to the yearnings, the troubles, the joys and the hopes of the people of the promise.   With Mary, he discovered himself a Son of God’s faithful people.octave-day.mary mother of god - 2016jpg

In the Gospels, Mary appears as a woman of few words, with no great speeches or deeds but with an attentive gaze capable of guarding the life and mission of her Son and for this reason, of everything that he loves.   She was able to watch over the beginnings of the first Christian community and in this way she learned to be the mother of a multitude.   She drew near to the most diverse situations in order to sow hope.   She accompanied the crosses borne in the silence of her children’s hearts.   How many devotions, shrines and chapels in the most far-off places, how many pictures in our homes, remind us of this great truth.   Mary gave us a mother’s warmth, the warmth that shelters us amid troubles, the maternal warmth that keeps anything or anyone from extinguishing in the heart of the Church the revolution of tenderness inaugurated by her Son.   Where there is a mother, there is tenderness.   By her motherhood, Mary shows us that humility and tenderness are not virtues of the weak but of the strong. She teaches us that we do not have to mistreat others in order to feel important (cf. Evangelii Gaudium, 288).    God’s holy people has always acknowledged and hailed her as the Holy Mother of God.

To celebrate Mary as Mother of God and our mother at the beginning of the new year means recalling a certainty that will accompany our days:   we are a people with a Mother;   we are not orphans.

Mothers are the strongest antidote to our individualistic and egotistic tendencies, to our lack of openness and our indifference.   A society without mothers would not only be a cold society, but a society that has lost its heart, lost the “feel of home”.   A society without mothers would be a merciless society, one that has room only for calculation and speculation.   Because mothers, even at the worst times, are capable of testifying to tenderness, unconditional self-sacrifice and the strength of hope.   I have learned much from those mothers whose children are in prison, or lying in hospital beds, or in bondage to drugs, yet, come cold or heat, rain or draught, never stop fighting for what is best for them.   Or those mothers who in refugee camps, or even the midst of war, unfailingly embrace and support their children’s sufferings.   Mothers who literally give their lives so that none of their children will perish.   Where there is a mother, there is unity, there is belonging, belonging as children.

To begin the year by recalling God’s goodness in the maternal face of Mary, in the maternal face of the Church, in the faces of our own mothers, protects us from the corrosive disease of being “spiritual orphans”.   It is the sense of being orphaned that the soul experiences when it feels motherless and lacking the tenderness of God, when the sense of belonging to a family, a people, a land, to our God, grows dim.   This sense of being orphaned lodges in a narcissistic heart capable of looking only to itself and its own interests.   It grows when what we forget that life is a gift we have received – and owe to others – a gift we are called to share in this common home.

It was such a self-centred orphanhood that led Cain to ask:  “Am I my brother’s keeper?” (Gen 4:9).   It was as if to say:  he doesn’t belong to me;  I do not recognise him.   This attitude of spiritual orphanhood is a cancer that silently eats away at and debases the soul.   We become all the more debased, inasmuch as nobody belongs to us and we belong to no one.   I debase the earth because it does not belong to me;  I debase others because they do not belong to me;  I debase God because I do not belong to him and in the end we debase our very selves, since we forget who we are and the divine “family name” we bear.   The loss of the ties that bind us, so typical of our fragmented and divided culture, increases this sense of orphanhood and, as a result, of great emptiness and loneliness.   The lack of physical (and not virtual) contact is cauterising our hearts (cf. Laudato Si’, 49) and making us lose the capacity for tenderness and wonder, for pity and compassion.   Spiritual orphanhood makes us forget what it means to be children, grandchildren, parents, grandparents, friends and believers.   It makes us forget the importance of playing, of singing, of a smile, of rest, of gratitude.

Celebrating the feast of the Holy Mother of God makes us smile once more as we realise that we are a people, that we belong, that only within a community, within a family, can we as persons find the “climate”, the “warmth” that enables us to grow in humanity and not merely as objects meant to “consume and be consumed”.   To celebrate the feast of the Holy Mother of God reminds us that we are not interchangeable items of merchandise or information processors.   We are children, we are family, we are God’s People.

Celebrating the Holy Mother of God leads us to create and care for common places that can give us a sense of belonging, of being rooted, of feeling at home in our cities, in communities that unite and support us (cf. Laudato Si’, 151).2.2.2.x-collection-detail-sirani_virgin_and_childMother-of-GodVirgin and Child (Luis De Morales)

Jesus, at the moment of his ultimate self-sacrifice, on the cross, sought to keep nothing for himself, and in handing over his life, he also handed over to us his Mother.   He told Mary:   Here is your son; here are your children.   We too want to receive her into our homes, our families, our communities and nations.   We want to meet her maternal gaze. The gaze that frees us from being orphans; the gaze that reminds us that we are brothers and sisters, that I belong to you, that you belong to me, that we are of the same flesh.   The gaze that teaches us that we have to learn how to care for life in the same way and with the same tenderness that she did:  by sowing hope, by sowing a sense of belonging and of fraternity.

Celebrating the Holy Mother of God reminds us that we have a Mother.   We are not orphans.   We have a Mother.   Together let us all confess this truth.   I invite you to acclaim it three times, standing [all stand], like the faithful of Ephesus:  Holy Mother of God, Holy Mother of God, Holy Mother of God.BallymoteChurchoftheImmaculateConceptionNorthAisleMadonnaandChild20100923

Thought for the Day – 22 October – The Memorial of St Pope John Paul II (1920-2005)

Before John Paul II’s funeral Mass in St Peter’s Square, hundreds of thousands of people had waited patiently for a brief moment to pray before his body, which lay in state inside St Peter’s for several days.   The media coverage of his funeral was unprecedented.

Presiding at the funeral Mass, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger–then dean of the College of Cardinals and later Pope Benedict XVI–concluded his homily by saying:  “None of us can ever forget how, in that last Easter Sunday of his life, the Holy Father, marked by suffering, came once more to the window of the Apostolic Palace and one last time gave his blessing urbi et orbi (‘to the city and to the world’).

“We can be sure that our beloved pope is standing today at the window of the Father’s house, that sees us and blesses us.   Yes, bless us, Holy Father.   We entrust your dear soul to the Mother of God, your Mother, who guided you each day and who will guide you now to the glory of her Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.”

Mary, Mother of God, Pray for us!mary mother of god pray for us
St John Paul, ‘Witness to Hope’ – Pray for us!st jp pray for us.2

“Christ is the center of the universe and of human history” was the opening line of John Paul II’s 1979 encyclical, Redeemer of the Human Race. In 1995, he described himself to the United Nations General Assembly as “a witness to hope.”

Thought for the Day 1 January 2017

Many themes come together at today’s celebration. It is the Octave of Christmas: Our remembrance of Mary’s divine motherhood injects a further note of Christmas joy. It is a day of prayer for world peace: Mary is the mother of the Prince of Peace. It is the first day of a new year: Mary continues to bring new life to her children—who are also God’s children

Mary, Mother of God, Pray for us!

Celebrating the CHRISTMAS SEASON OCTAVE DAY – 1 JANUARY SOLEMNITY of MARY, MOTHER OF GOD

Celebrating the CHRISTMAS SEASON
OCTAVE DAY – 1 JANUARY
SOLEMNITY of MARY, MOTHER OF GOD

Sunday, 1st January is the Solemnity of Mary the Mother of God. It is also the World Day of Prayer for Peace.

“Lord, open my lips, and my mouth shall declare your praise.”

Daily Meditation:
Your light has come, the glory of the Lord shines upon you. Isaiah 60

May the kings of Tarshish and the islands bring tribute, the kings of Arabia and Seba offer gifts.
May all kings bow before him, all nations serve him.
For he rescues the poor when they cry out, the oppressed who have no one to help.
He shows pity to the needy and the poor and saves the lives of the poor. Psalm 72

The Gentiles are coheirs, members of the same body and co-partners in the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel.
Ephesians 3

This great feast – celebrated in the East as the Baptism of the Lord – is a feast of “revelation.”
Jesus is the beloved Son of God,
a light for the whole world,
the very one who comes to us in time, this year,
to be our saviour:
to rescue the poor, to hear our cry,
to save us in our need, in our poverty.

May we bring Him the gifts of our faith and trust and hope.
May we recognize Him as our Saviour
who gave His own life to set us free from the power of sin and death.
Come, let us adore Him.

Closing Prayer:
Light of the world,
You have come into my life; You are here for me in my poverty.
I am dazzled by the gifts You bring to me on this day:
“Your light is strong, your love is near.”

Truly You have drawn me far beyond the limits of the world,
and into the limit-less boundaries of Your dizzying love.

My gifts are small, and often filled with fear.
They are my trust and my hope.
Please accept them and heal me
and let me be free enough to rejoice
that You are the Beloved Son
and that You have come for me

May the Lord bless us,
protect us from all evil
and bring us to everlasting life.
Amen.
