I wish I had the immense faith that Mary did when she was just 14 years old. Being able to say yes to a job so vast, that I don’t even understand what it involves. If you are anything like me, I like to know the details of the job, knowing exactly what I will be doing, and what it consists of. Mary had none of that. All she knew was that God chose her to bore the Son of Man.
Pope St John Paul the second is a great example of having a boundless devotion to Our Lady. At the age of 9, the future pope Karol, lost his mother, and his brother at age of 12. After his mother’s death, he was brought to a church to devote himself to mary. Asking that Mary be his mother now. John Paul the Second kept this devotion right to his death. When he became pope, he made is papal moto, “Totus Tuus” which means, “ Totally yours” which he said were the words that he said to Mary at the age of nine. 3
It is a given fact that no one knows a boy like his mother does. In one way or another I am sure most males have a special connection to their mothers. This is no different between Jesus and his mother, Mary. Mary helps intercedes for us to Jesus, and no son can turn down his mother fully. So Mary is like a one way ticket for fulfilling your prayers.
Mary forms us. She was called into the role of being the mother of God. She didn’t know what that consisted of. Although, she grew into that role, like St Peter grew into his role before he understood his new role. She was formed into this perfect person. Marys helps us to become more like Jesus. She forms us into the image of Christ.
For this week, I would like to suggest creating a devotion to the blessed Virgin. Pray the rosary often, pray to her every day, and devote yourself to her in every situation. Make her your mother. We are baptised as adopted sons and daughters of Christ, and Mary will treat just as that, sons and daughters. Parents, as far as I can tell, do whatever they can to make sure their kids are well off, and are living a good and healthy life. Mary is no different.
To make this Ordinary time a little Less ordinary, if you haven’t already, create a strong devotion to the blessed mother. It isn’t easy. We must work towards that incredible devotion to the Blessed Virgin and stick with it- like Pope Saint John Paul the second. When we fully consecrate ourselves to the blessed virgin, we become closer to Christ. We draw to near to Christ by drawing near to Mary.
