Just a few thoughts on todays readings. The Readings stated “maternal mediation basically means that Mary is our spiritual mother, who assists us from heaven with her prayers and motherly care to help bring us to God. Yet a bible verse that was always a challenge for me to answer was 1 Timothy 2:5 “There is one mediator between God and men, the man Jesus Christ”. After reading todays readings, it was clear on Mary’s purpose and why Mary’s Intercession does not contradict 1 Timothy 2:5. As it says, God is generous with His love. He calls us all to be saints and to participate in His Kingdom. To quote the book “In other words, Jesus doesn’t keep his role as mediator to himself. He wants Mary–and not just Mary, but all Christians (You and I) to share in his one mediation, though in subordinate ways.” This makes sense to me for we all called to pray for others, we all called to bring Jesus to others, We are called to detach ourselves from the World, and say “let it be done according to thy will”. I do believe that Mary is our Heavenly Mother, and its a very peaceful thought to know that I have an amazing mother here on earth and an amazing mother in Heaven, both who point me to Jesus, and both who pray for me.
