Mary, the Mother of God shows us how her life is perfectly and intimately identified with that of her Son Jesus our Lord and Savior. It is a reflection on the most profound moments in Mary’s earthly life, from the Immaculate Conception to Cana and Pentecost. She is the mother of all the faithful because she educates us as a mother. She shows us how to live our lives by her example in the mysteries of faith, hope, and charity. It should be readily apparent that Jesus loves and honors His Mother while on earth and forever in Heaven. She is the Queen of Heaven; Jesus is the King, and it will always be so. Indeed she will crush the head of Satan when he is finally thrust into Hell on “The Last Judgement”! The day when Jesus calls all before Him, the goats on His left and sheep on His right. Satan and the goats who hate God will be condemned and thrown into the life they have chosen for eternity. They will live without God, family, and friends in utter misery, despair, hopelessness, and agony forever. The evils ones will be separated from God and His family, the sheep once and for all. After the Last Judgment, there will be a new heaven and a new earth where we will live with our new bodies. The heavenly Jerusalem will come down from heaven and be on earth. God the Father and God the Son will be there (Revelation 21).
Catholics pray for Mary’s intercession and Jesus always responds to her requests. That began at the wedding of Cana when Mary said to Jesus, they have no wine. Jesus said His time has not yet come, but Mary told the servants to do as He says. So they filled the jars with water and Jesus performed His first miracle – the water became the best of wine. Catholics frequently say the Hail Mary. It is a prayer for Mary to pray for us especially at the hour of our death. Hail, Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
