The Sacred Heart of Mary

Yesterday we celebrated the amazing love of God in Jesus.All are saved through Jesus. This, of course, includes Mary his mother who is a creature like we are . Mary was preserved from sin by the grace that comes from Jesus. She freely cooperated with that grace.However, Jesus gave us Mary as our mother in faith. She is the one who first said yes to Jesus at the incarnation, responding to God’s invitation through the archangel Gabriel.She kept on saying yes to God throughout her whole life.A mother’s heart is full of love for her children. It is so hard to beat a mother’s love!Mary is a mother, friend and loving companion on our Journey.She helps our ongoing rebirth in our commitment to following Jesus.
