May 5th Meditation: Mary Her Immaculate Conception

May 5: Mary – Her Immaculate Conception *

How would we have acted if we could have chosen our own mother? I’m sure we would have chosen the one we have, adorning her with every possible grace. That is what Christ did. Christ being all-powerful, all-wise, Love itself, his power carried out his Will… This is the clearest reason why our  Lord granted his mother, from the very moment of her Immaculate Conception, all possible privileges. She was free from the power of Satan. She is beautiful, spotless and pure in soul and body.” (“Cause of Our Joy”, Christ is Passing By, 171) 


Let us offer to our Mother today: The renewal of our baptismal vows. 

*Taken from The Handbook of Prayers, Woodridge, IL: MidWest Theological Forum, 1992 – 2011( in the section Marian Readings). This section of the Handbook of Prayers takes exerpts from homilies of St. Josemaria Escriva in Christ is Passing By and Friends of God, Princeton, N.J.:Scepter Publications, 1968/1973. 

 

When I read this meditation today I can’t help but think as Mother’s Day is approaching how mothers are often forgotten.

They work in silence, doing everything that the family needs.

They love and support.

Good mothers may not realize how much they resemble the Mother of Christ.

They may take for granted that Mary is their model.

Everyone has a tendency to be a mother. We all have it in us to desire to nurture and take care of others.

It is the love that was planted in our souls at our baptism.

So today let us not forgot those vows that we either took as adults or that our own mother’s took for us as babies.

We recall when we renewed them at our Confirmation

and so

today

we recall them and try to live them just the way Mary our Mother would want us to live them.
