MONTH OF MAY DEVOTION TO MARY
We need Mary.
Somehow when you think about the peasant girl with a child in her arms in a cave in Bethlehem, or the frightened young mother looking for her lost 12-year-old son, or the widowed mother struggling to understand the things her son is saying and doing, or the tearful mother who watches her only son die in the prime of life...you are in touch with someone who is one of us, who loves God dearly and is dearly loved by God despite all that may seem otherwise. Religion is no longer an abstraction, and goodness is no longer impossible when you think of Mary as one of us.
More and more Catholics are coming back to Mary.
Perhaps Vatican II has helped us go through what youngsters must go through as they reach maturity. We are learning to have an adult, rather than a small child relationship to our Mother. Only that kind of relationship does justice to this strong woman who is Mary.
