Mary is an important example of how the testimony of a believer reflects the love of God, proclaims him and encourages others to be faithful and fruitful.
We shall call her “blessed!”,*
not merely memory, but her in heaven, yes.
She, Immanuel-bearer, provoked jealousness,**
so that we the Body should hold His Holiness.
Maria saw first-hand, felt faith grow for months,
mercy formed, for the first time, the preexisting One.***
Why was she favored, why indeed her Son?
No one was spared to show the Father’s Love.****
He would stir the nations,
her heart be made borderless
by the sorrow of losing
Messiah on that life-size crucifix.+
But joy would always conquer,
help the mother see the Son
as making her an instrument to suffer,
even to go mother John.++
The one who leaned on Jesus’ chest,+++
would need Maria’s song
and vision to prepare his pen
for Patmos’ revelation.++++
