Our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ arrived as her baby Son, but He died as her Savior. The baby she delivered ultimately delivered her. But the agony of watching her Son beaten and hung on a cross must have been very painful.
What joy she must have experienced when Christ was raised from the dead! Even though you may experience pain, make yourself available to be used by God. As our mother St. Mary did. Her circumstances were not ideal, and yet she still served the Lord her God. Let us call upon our Mother for her prayers to her Son, our Saviour to guide us, help us in our hard times. Let us look to our Mother who served when she could have rested. In all she does, Glory is given to God! By her intercession and by the grace of God may we, her children, follow in her footsteps to do the same, to bring all glory to God in whatever we do.
