The Mother’s Heart Of Love
Yesterday was the Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, today we celebrate the memorial of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, the heart of a perfect and model mother. The two hearts go hand in hand. In celebration the immaculate heart, we honor our Blessed Mother Mary. Her heart is a sign of her perfect love for us. As the name applies and implies, the heart of Mary is spotless and perfect in love. Her love is totally and completely invested, nurturing and sacrificial. It is total and holistic, not just a love of neighbor or friend. Mary’s love is the perfection of a mother’s love. It is the unique love for all her children. The immaculate heart connotes the immaculate love of our Blessed Mother as God’s glorious gift. She is the instrument through which salvation came to us. Mary is the continuing instrument and channel through which graces given by Christ come into the world. She is indeed the Mediatrix of all graces. God destined her for it and she responded and played it perfectly well. Let us imitate her perfect love. As God has chosen to save humanity through her and not by any other ways or means, we must humbly and honestly acknowledge Mary as a means of mediation. God does not change nor his mind changes. He still uses Mary today as an instrument of salvation and peace as he used her over 2000 years ago. May God pour forth his graces and love on the world through her intercession, and may Mary distributes God’s love and mercy through her Immaculate and motherly Heart, through Christ our Lord, Amen. “YOU ARE THE LIGHT” Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us.
