Mother of Light

When Jesus saw his mother, and the disciple whom he loved standing near, he said to his mother, “Woman, behold, your son!” Then he said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother!” (John 19:26-27)

Mother of Jesus - Mother of LightMary, Mother of Jesus, is the gateway of God. It was through her that the eternal light of Jesus Christ entered the world.  Recognized throughout the world as the Mother of God, the most Holy Vessel of Light, as well as the Virgin Mary, the miracle of Mary did not end with the earthly birth and life of Jesus. Since the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ there has been more than one miraculous appearance of the Virgin Mary and countless miracles are attributed to the eternal grace of her infinite presence, love, and compassion.  Truly, Mary is a mystical demonstration of the unlimited grace and light of God.  As Jesus points out, his mother is the mother of everyone, revealing the light that unites us all to the infinite light of God – a demonstration of eternal life.

A woman in the crowd raised her voice and said to Jesus, “Blessed is the womb that bore you, and the breasts that you sucked!” But Jesus responded, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and keep it!” (Luke 11:27-28) Jesus always turns your attention back to the source, back to God.  Nothing was more important to Jesus than abiding in the word of God.  It is by abiding in the unlimited grace and power of God that Saints are born into the world, as was the case last week when the Pope Canonized Franciscan Monk Antonio de Sant’Anna Galvão of Brazil.  How can looking at the life of this simple monk help you understand the unlimited power of prayer, the limitless grace of Mary Mother of Jesus, and the infinite love of God?
