Mary, Mother of God

‘Sobotni promyk” – Piotr Stachiewicz (1858-1938)

January 1, 2021, we celebrate the Solemnity of Mary the Mother of God. True God and True man.

Ponder, if you will, the tasks of a Mother. Contemplate our Holy Mother doing these same tasks for our Lord. He needed to grow into a man, to eat, to drink, to be changed, to be bathed, to be held, to be comforted, to be taught. To be loved.

Ponder his cooing to her, how He gazed into her eyes, how he touched her face as she held Him near.

Ponder, did she teach Him to say Abba first before He said Mama?

She is a Mother like all mothers in sharing every responsibility that comes with Motherhood and unlike any other mother, being the Immaculate Conception.

Pray for us, O holy Mother of God. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
