Another thought on this Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of Mary.
Adam and Eve disobeyed God and went astray. Through Mary, the new Eve, Christ came to us and we were brought back to God. We who believe are no longer lost. The circle is now complete. How blessed we are! Thanks be to God. Thank you, Mother, for your cooperation.
When I was a child my mother suffered from mental illness and could not take care of me, although she loved me. The first time I heard that old folk song "Motherless Child" I identified with it. I loved Mary as a child, but it wasn't until I left and then returned to the church that I turely understood her motherhood and was healed of that wound.ReplyDelete
