Two weeks away from graduation, I felt everything slipping from my control, into a place where every question was open ended. And there seemed no answers. Would I get a job? Would I be a failure?
Mother of God
Let us this day renew our love for the Virgin Mary, who proceeds us in the order of grace, and who has travelled the path of life before her children in the Church. . . .
Having converted to Catholicism in my late teens, I had little experience or knowledge of The Virgin Mary, our Blessed Mother. I honored her mostly at Christmas time, knowing that she was called “Blessed” and that she carried our Savior in her womb.
Blessed John Paul II wrote in Redemptoris Mater that the “Church journeys through time toward the consummation of the ages and goes to meet the Lord who comes.”
Through devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, we are attracted to Mary’s immense love for her Son. This leads us to recognize that her Immaculate Heart is inseparably bound up with the Sacred Heart of Jesus as two hearts of love joined for eternity.
