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.

Wednesday of the Nineteenth Week in Ordinary Time
Thought of the day
    Wednesday of the Nineteenth Week in Ordinary Time LECTIONARY:415 FIRST READING: EZK 9:1-7; 10:18-22 The LORD cried loud for me to hear: Come, you scourges of the city! With that I saw six men coming from the direction of the upper gate which faces the north, each with a destroying weapon in his hand. In their midst was a man dressed in linen, with a writer’s case at his waist. They entered and stood beside the bronze altar. Then he called to the man dressed in linen with the writer’s case at his waist, saying to him: Pass through the city, through Jerusalem, and mark a “Thau” on the foreheads of those who moan and groan over all the abominations that are practiced within it. To the others I heard the LORD say: Pass through the city after him and strike! Do not look on them with pity nor show any mercy! Old men, youths and maidens, women and children–wipe them out! But do not touch any marked with the “Thau”; begin at my sanctuary. So they began with the men, the elders, who were in front of the temple. Defile the temple, he said to them, and fill the courts with the slain; then go out and strike in the city. Then the glory of the LORD left the threshold of the temple and rested upon the cherubim. These lifted their wings, and I saw them rise from the earth, the wheels rising along with them. They stood at the entrance of the eastern gate of the LORD’s house, and the glory of the God of Israel was up above them. Then the cherubim lifted their wings, and the wheels went along with them, while up above them was the glory of the God of Israel. PSALM 113:1-2, 3-4, 5-6 Response: The glory of the Lord is higher than the skies. Praise, you servants of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD. Blessed be the name of the LORD both now and forever. From the rising to the setting of the sun is the name of the LORD to be praised. High above all nations is the LORD; above the heavens is his glory. Who is like the LORD, our God, who is enthroned on high, and looks upon the heavens and the earth below? GOSPEL: MT 18:15-20 Jesus said to his disciples: “If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have won over your brother. If he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, so that every fact may be established on the testimony of two or three witnesses. If he refuses to listen to them, tell the Church. If he refuses to listen even to the Church, then treat him as you would a Gentile or a tax collector. Amen, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again, amen, I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything for which they are to pray, it shall be granted to them by my heavenly Father. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Source: Archdiocese of Mumbai - official website (https://www.archdioceseofbombay.org/) 12 August 2020 - 06.10 hours
