Mary- Mother of God

Mother is a mystical and fascinating figure, and the mother’s love is beyond compare. Mary conceived and gave birth to Jesus, and so undoubtedly is the mother of Jesus. Now Jesus is both God and man. He is a divine person, God the Son, who accepted human nature. Jesus therefore, has two natures, but is only one person. A mother gives birth not to a nature but to a person. And Jesus whom Mary bore is a divine person. Since her son is a divine person, she is the Mother of God. The Council of Ephesus(431) defined Mary as the Mother of God because the Word was born according to the flesh from her was generated sacred body of  the Word become flesh. She remained virgin because she did not ‘know man’ she became mother by God’s unique intervention. AsElizabeth said, Mary is “the mother of my Lord”(Lk”1:43). She is also our mother because Jesus has made us sons and daughters of God. Jesus clearly says form the cross, “She is your mother”(Jn19:27). The faith that unveils the mysterious relationship between Mary and us loves to call her “our mother”. God wants the mother to be honoured(Ex 20:12).

Like the disciple who took Mary to his home(Jn19:27) all of us need to welcome Mary as mother in our life, thought and love. To welcome her, therefore, is not a mere duty but our need.

Daily Readings
 June 12th, 2019
2 COR 3:4-11
Thought of the day
    June 12th, 2019 Wednesday of the Tenth Week in Ordinary Time Lectionary: 361 Reading 1 2 COR 3:4-11 Brothers and sisters: Such confidence we have through Christ toward God. Not that of ourselves we are qualified to take credit for anything as coming from us; rather, our qualification comes from God, who has indeed qualified us as ministers of a new covenant, not of letter but of spirit; for the letter brings death, but the Spirit gives life. Now if the ministry of death, carved in letters on stone, was so glorious that the children of Israel could not look intently at the face of Moses because of its glory that was going to fade, how much more will the ministry of the Spirit be glorious? For if the ministry of condemnation was glorious, the ministry of righteousness will abound much more in glory. Indeed, what was endowed with glory has come to have no glory in this respect because of the glory that surpasses it. For if what was going to fade was glorious, how much more will what endures be glorious. Responsorial Psalm PS 99:5, 6, 7, 8, 9 R.(see 9c) Holy is the Lord our God. Extol the LORD, our God, and worship at his footstool; holy is he! R. Holy is the Lord our God. Moses and Aaron were among his priests, and Samuel, among those who called upon his name; they called upon the LORD, and he answered them. R. Holy is the Lord our God. From the pillar of cloud he spoke to them; they heard his decrees and the law he gave them. R. Holy is the Lord our God. O LORD, our God, you answered them; a forgiving God you were to them, though requiting their misdeeds. R. Holy is the Lord our God. Extol the LORD, our God, and worship at his holy mountain; for holy is the LORD, our God. R. Holy is the Lord our God. Alleluia PS 25:4B, 5A R. Alleluia, alleluia. Teach me your paths, my God, and guide me in your truth. R. Alleluia, alleluia. Gospel MT 5:17-19 Jesus said to his disciples: "Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have come not to abolish but to fulfill. Amen, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or the smallest part of a letter will pass from the law, until all things have taken place. Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do so will be called least in the Kingdom of heaven. But whoever obeys and teaches these commandments will be called greatest in the Kingdom of heaven."
