Today we celebrate the feast day of Mary, The Mother of God. Mary is the Mother of God Incarnate. Like any other mother who knows her child best Mary knows Jesus best, also. Mary has the utmost understanding and love for each of us. She has a great understanding of suffering.
Her experience of suffering in having watched the pain that her son endured as he was tortured, nailed to the cross, and in his death on the cross has given her the ability to have a special connection with us as we go through various sufferings in our own lives. We can pray to Jesus by praying to Mary. God is love. He is more than an abstract type of love. His love consists of a Parent-child love. “Since God is Eternal, so, now, is His Mother, and her tender motherly care is forever available to us.”
