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.

Tuesday in the Octave of Easter
Thought of the day
    April 23rd, 2019 Tuesday in the Octave of Easter Lectionary: 262 Reading 1 ACTS 2:36-41 On the day of Pentecost, Peter said to the Jewish people, “Let the whole house of Israel know for certain that God has made him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom you crucified.” Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and they asked Peter and the other Apostles, “What are we to do, my brothers?” Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ, for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is made to you and to your children and to all those far off, whomever the Lord our God will call.” He testified with many other arguments, and was exhorting them, “Save yourselves from this corrupt generation.” Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand persons were added that day. Responsorial Psalm PS 33:4-5, 18-19, 20 AND 22 R.(5b) The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord. or: R. Alleluia. Upright is the word of the LORD, and all his works are trustworthy. He loves justice and right; of the kindness of the LORD the earth is full. R. The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord. or: R. Alleluia. See, the eyes of the LORD are upon those who fear him, upon those who hope for his kindness, To deliver them from death and preserve them in spite of famine. R. The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord. or: R. Alleluia. Our soul waits for the LORD, who is our help and our shield. May your kindness, O LORD, be upon us who have put our hope in you. R. The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord. or: R. Alleluia. Alleluia PS 118:24 R. Alleluia, alleluia. This is the day the LORD has made; let us be glad and rejoice in it. R. Alleluia, alleluia. Gospel JN 20:11-18 Mary Magdalene stayed outside the tomb weeping. And as she wept, she bent over into the tomb and saw two angels in white sitting there, one at the head and one at the feet where the Body of Jesus had been. And they said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?” She said to them, “They have taken my Lord, and I don’t know where they laid him.” When she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus there, but did not know it was Jesus. Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you looking for?” She thought it was the gardener and said to him, “Sir, if you carried him away, tell me where you laid him, and I will take him.” Jesus said to her, “Mary!” She turned and said to him in Hebrew, “Rabbouni,” which means Teacher. Jesus said to her, “Stop holding on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. But go to my brothers and tell them, ‘I am going to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’” Mary went and announced to the disciples, “I have seen the Lord,” and then reported what he had told her.
