Due to the preparations being made for the October 1 event, we will be extremely busy in the coming week. I may not be posting for the next few days. So, taking the liberty of copying an excerpt from an article posted on Rorate, I leave our readers to ponder, to mediate on the role of our Blessed Lady in the Mass. Prayerfully, take a few minutes each day to delve into this mystery.
May you come to love and appreciate our heavenly Mother more and more!
The Most Holy Virgin has a considerable position in liturgical worship, because she is linked, with an indissoluble connection, to Jesus Christ, who is the center. She is, together with Jesus Christ, the masterpiece with which God displayed His power and His goodness. Because Jesus was born of Mary, she takes greater part in all of His gifts and in His life; she also takes part in His glory and in the distribution of the goods of grace. She received from all creatures and presents it all to Jesus Christ. Thus we have the Mediator between God and men: Jesus Christ; and we have the Mediatrix between Jesus Christ and mankind: Mary – she sings her Magnificat, offering God all the praises, honor, and requests that the creatures send her.
