THE MOTHER WHO IS ALWAYS WITH US ON THE JOURNEY OF LIFE

Life’s beginning, growth, maturity and fruitfulness are not without a mother.  Generally, motherhood is a divine gift which ensures the fulfilment of God’s plan of bringing life back to the world with its original fullness. 

The Church recognizes with certainty that Mary’s motherhood consists not only in giving birth to the Son of God made man but also in bringing the whole life of creation back to its original form.  Each year’s beginning is fittingly marked by Mary’s motherhood, an assurance that, as the entire humanity sets forth for another year-long life journey and due to Her motherly company and presence,  uplifting and joyful progress would be achieved.

Mary’s motherly presence in our life-journey concerns not in making the way straight, wide and safe but rather in showing the right One, the true Way, Jesus Her Son. 

May this year's journey of ours towards the fullness of life be always with Mary, Mother of God and our Mother.  Amen.
