Behold your Mother

Abbott Joseph has written an apology of sorts for those who might discredit today's feast:

The Mother of God does not come to reveal herself, but only to serve God’s plan of salvation in our regard. She is not somehow between us and God, but she lovingly walks with us, rejoices and weeps with us—and maybe prods us a bit when we need it—but she is always a steadfast though unseen support, and a source of unceasing intercession.

Mary always points to Jesus. We want to draw close to Him. Who is more close to Him right now than His Mother? Jesus left Mary in the care of His disciples. The disciples, in turn, were left in the care of Mary.

She is now our Mother. Ask for her care, her intercession, her ardent devotion to Jesus.
Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, our Life, our Sweetness, and Our Hope~
