Qualities of Mother Mary

Qualities of Mother Mary

Tomorrow, on September 8th, we celebrate the birthday of our beloved Mother Mary, the Mother of all mothers. On this special occasion when we remember the immaculate conception, we should seek her special intercession for all our prayers and needs.

Let us ponder on some of the most important qualities of Mother Mary.

1. Mary was highly favored. God was with her. She was chosen to be the mother of Jesus’ humanity. This tells us that Mary was a young woman of outstanding moral and spiritual character.

2. Mary was submissive to God. She counted the cost. So far as she knew: she would lose Joseph; she would be a social outcast; she had no idea how she would raise the Child. Yet she said without hesitation, “May it be to me as you have said” (Luke 1:38).

3. With thoughts tumbling through her mind and emotions churning inside, Mary arose and raced the many miles from Nazareth to the hills of Judea. She had to see Elizabeth!

4. Mary was a woman of faith. Part of Elizabeth’s prophetic response to Mary’s greeting was “blessed is she who has believed” (Luke 1:45).

5. Mary was humble. She spoke of her “humble state” (Luke 1:48). She realized that she was a girl from Nazareth with no social status.

6. Mary was spiritual. She was a devout worshipper. We see this in the profound and powerful words of the Magnificat (Luke 1:46-55).

7. Mary was thoughtful. She kept the words of the shepherds and pondered them in her heart (Luke 2:19). Twelve years later in Jerusalem Jesus made a pointed statement about His true Father that Mary kept also in her heart (Luke 2:51).

8. The most appropriate role model for women. As a motherly figure, Mary exemplifies strength of godliness, strength, and maternal instinct. Mary portrays traits of holiness, piety, and humbleness. As a teacher, Mary instructs women on the importance of trust and perseverance.

9. One of the most valuable strengths Mary possessed was her ability to persevere. She went through many trials in her life, but she never lost sight of the Lord. She used her complete trust in God and her strong will to overcome obstacles and setbacks.

10. The Angel Gabriel greeted Mary as “full of grace” or the one who enjoys “God’s favor”, which is enough to give us an idea of her magnificence! Yes, she who was to become the Mother of the divine Son, our Redeemer, chosen by God from all eternity, could only be endowed with all natural and supernatural perfection, and consequently with all the corresponding virtues.

Have a blessed and wonderful feast of the immaculate conception. Let our beloved mother intercede for even the smallest of our needs. We love you our dearest mom. God bless you all.

Poem : Mary, The Immaculate

Mary The Immaculate

God willed through His Spirit
A ‘preservative redemption’
For Mary – the Mother of His Son.

Being The Creator
And apart from His Creation
His will was done.

For in no manner could His Word
Becoming Jesus – Our Savior from
Sin – be stained with the Original
Sin of Adam and Eve.

Thus, God, The Father ordained
That The Mother of Our Lord Jesus
Would be immaculate, that is,
Free from any trace of Original Sin.

Those in denial of this truth
Are claiming that Jesus was ‘a sinner’.
Thus the source of the latter
Can only be – the father of lies!

May God have mercy on them
And bring them to the TRUTH!!!

Immaculate Conception

Immaculate Conception

This is how Jesus the Messiah was born. His mother, Mary, was engaged to be married to Joseph. But before the marriage took place, while she was still a virgin, she became pregnant through the power of the Holy Spirit. – (Matthew 1:18)

While we try to describe how the Spirit of God works in our lives, a deep sense of mystery, wonder, and awe remains. How could God love us so much as to be present inside us through his Holy Spirit. This is an inexplicable miracle of God’s promise and grace. The Holy and eternal God comes to life in us through the Holy Spirit.

The Spirit produces great changes in us because of his presence. So as unbelievable as the conception of Jesus the Messiah in the womb of the virgin Mary may seem, those of us who are followers of Jesus already have experienced a small taste of what happens in Mary — Jesus came to life in her through the life-giving power of the Holy Spirit.

At the core of the gospel of Jesus is this truth: the Spirit of God brings life where there was none. This happened first in the womb of Mary. This happens later in the expectant hearts of those who believe that Mary’s boy was also God’s Son!

Prayer : Father, our hearts resonate with a truth that our minds can’t grasp: the virgin Mary carried the Son of God in her womb! Yet the miracle in Mary is a reminder that you have given us new birth into a living hope through the power of the blessed Holy Spirit who raised Jesus from the dead. All praise to you, O God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. I praise you in Jesus’ name. Amen.
