The Virgin Mary, our Heavenly Mother…how many of us honor her and ask her in prayer to intercede to the Lord on our behalf? Her blessed womb was the very first tabernacle for Jesus. So pure, so holy is the Mother of God.
We are called to develop a relationship with our heavenly Mother. Mary will intercede on our behalf for all of the prayers we place in her care. How do we know this? Because she always brings our prayers right to Jesus. It’s never about her. It’s always about her Son.
The first miracle of Jesus shows us how Mary works in our lives. Remember the miracle of the wedding feast at Cana? When the wine ran out the servants went to Mary. She could have told them exactly what to do. But instead she said to them, “Do whatever He tells you.”
We are Catholic. Just like the servants we, too, go to Mary for help. Her intercession on our behalf brings us closer to her Son. Pray for Mary’s intercession for all of your needs. She is your heavenly Mother. Pray the rosary daily.
Ponder: When have you asked someone for their help for a special need you may have? How is this similar to our prayers to the saints?
Reflect: Sacred Scripture, John 2:1-11
Pray: Hail Mary, full of Grace The Lord is with thee. Blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of death. Amen.
