For The Love Of Mary


3850710744_ebc4f35e8a_b

To love the Holy Virgin Mary does not equate to worshiping her. You can love someone very deeply, but it does not mean that you worship them. I can not say how many times I have said to our Lord, I love you. Tonight, pondering, and praying in front of Him in the Blessed Sacrament, the words fell from my lips, I worship You.

“Never be afraid of loving the Blessed Virgin too much. You can never love her more than Jesus did.” –Saint Maximilian Kolbe

I was drawn into the Wedding at Cana in which our Lords public ministry began, (John 2:11) by the intercession of our Holy Mother Mary, approaching our Lord to inform Him, “They have no wine”. In other words, Please Help! How can we not ask of her, for that same help today for the times that we do not have wine. When there is no cause for celebration in our lives. When we are presented with the injection of chaos in our daily lives that are the cause of personal struggles and storms. When trouble arrives and conflict is eminent. In all our trials. In the dark trenches of misery we face from time to time. When we have no wine. She, as all our Holy Angels and Saints, are here to help.

in·ter·ces·sion
ˌin(t)ərˈseSHən/
noun
the action of intervening on behalf of another

CCC 2647 Prayer of intercession consists in asking on behalf of another. It knows no boundaries and extends to one’s enemies.

A prayer from St. Don Bosco

Most Holy Virgin Mary, Help of Christian,
how sweet it is to come to your feet
imploring your perpetual help.
If earthly mothers cease not to remember their children,
how can you, the most loving of all mothers forget me?
Grant then to me, I implore you,
your perpetual help in all my necessities,
in every sorrow, and especially in all my temptations.
I ask for your unceasing help for all who are now suffering.
Help the weak, cure the sick, convert sinners.
Grant through your intercessions many vocations to the religious life.
Obtain for us, O Mary, Help of Christians,
that having invoked you on earth we may love and eternally thank you in heaven.

Amen
