The Love of the Blessed MotherApr 28, 2022
The month of May, during which the Church especially honors the Blessed Mother, is upon us. How blessed are we that we have the love of the Blessed Mother! We have a spiritual mother who intercedes for us with her Son, just as she did at the wedding feast in Cana (John 2).
John’s Gospel further speaks of the special relationship we have with Mary when he recounts one of Jesus’ last actions as He was dying on the cross:
When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple there whom he loved, he said to his mother, “Woman behold your son.” Then he said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother.” And from that hour the disciple took her into his home. (John 19:26-27)
A Marian Experience
My grandmother, Carmella, prayed the rosary every day and during Mass on Sunday. Growing up, I observed how peaceful she was when she prayed, but I did not have a devotion to Mary until later in life.
One time, I felt God calling me to France to visit Paris and Lourdes. In Paris, I received a Marian miracle. The Church of the Miraculous Medal is located on a street called Rue de Bac. I was led to pray in that church at the Communion rail, to meditate on the Blessed Mother.
