May 18 Meditation: Mary the Co-Redemptrix

May 18: Mary the Co-Redemptrix 


“It is with good reason that the popes have called Mary Co-Redemptrix. ‘So fully, in union with her suffering and dying Son, did she suffer and nearly die; so fully, for the sake of the salvation of all souls, did she abdicate the rights of a mother over her Son, and immolate him, insofar as it was in her power, to satisfy the justice of God, that it can rightly be said that she redeemed mankind together with Christ.’ This gives us a deeper understanding of that moment in the Passion of our Lord on which we shall never tire of meditating: Stabat autem iuxta crucem Iesu mater eius. ‘There, standing by the cross of Jesus, was his mother'” . (“Mother of God and Our Mother”, Friends of God, 287) 




Let us offer to our Mother today: Five small hidden sacrifices in honor of the five major wounds of our Lord.
