A REFLECTION ON THE BEAUTY OF OUR MOTHER MARY

T
onight, I'm writing under the inspiration of a full Moon. Its white light falls on my window sills like the pure snow of a mid-summer night. The sky is dressed in a bright-blue veil and the crickets sing praises to this miracle of mystery. A few miles away, silent rattle snakes draw waves of desert-sand in search of preys and under the sounds of some wolves, which are howling to that white circle of light above.

The only creatures who seem to be unaware of this marvel minted from God's idyllic dream are God's very favorite creatures: human beings.
The light of the moon is not as entertaining as the one emanated by a flat TV screen, projecting the images of a bloody crime scene while drinking a Bloody Mary. The chirping of crickets dancing on the breeze is suffocated by the thundering uproar of blurry sloshed people cramped inside a dark cavern in the bizarre pursuit of debauchery. And the wolves howling love songs to their beloved mother Moon remain an invisible mirage lost in the night deserts of the east.
And once the lights of the city, of its night clubs, of its traffic-jams and of its skyscrapers go to sleep, so do the rich, the poor, the drunk, the sober, the faithful husband and the unfaithful wife living in that same town.

Silence finally descends.

It is in that juncture of dark stillness between the night city lights and the dawn sun rays that mystics, poets, painters, astronomers, writers, philosophers, inventors, explorers and dreamers would contemplate on the inexplicable face of their guiding companion which, reflecting the Sun's light, shines in the middle of her blue dress. The rock guiding the lost sailors in the darkness of a tempest is the woman who, dressed in the sun, comes to us at the end of the Book of Revelation: the Mother of God, Mary Most Holy.

Like the Moon, Her glow is the very reflection of Her Son's Rays of Eternal Glory. This silent and humble servant is sought by those who wish to see both at day and at night.
How could we begin to describe this Most Noble Queen whose holy feet graced the ground of the earth below? This girl lived among us as the most perfect creature and as the connecting link between the Old Testament and the New Testament. She was the very first and the very perfect Christian before Christ's conception was ever announced to Her by the glorious Archangel Gabriel.
It was at the unwrapping of this Holy Paper that the Gift of Eternal Life became the joy of the children of all generations. The birth She Gave on that 'silent night' and in the stench of a stable was not witnessed by the blind men and women in pursuit of this world's decadence a half mile away. These average people did not know that their King Had Come to save them that night. They did not know that same night will forever change time and history by establishing the year 'Zero'.
The painful delivery of Our Lady divided all ages into BC and AD, rendering Her the very bridge between two eras and representing 'The End of The Old' and 'The Beginning of The New'. It is no fruit of mere coincidence that Our Woman is God's Revenge over the Serpent in the Book of Genesis and God's Crowned Mother in the Book of Revelation. Picked by the providential Hand of the Almighty amidst billions of daisies under the Eden's heavens, this Mystical Rose was to be the new Eve: unlike Adam's spouse, She will not fall for the seduction of the same serpent who murdered humanity into sin but will triumph atop the endless spirals of perpetual glory in full dominion over Satan's Kingdom of Bottomless Doom.

In the presence of all the angels of Paradise, the Triune Creator of all seen and unseen was to accomplish the making of His Masterpiece: for six days Heaven was given the unmerited grace to admire God Create the equivalent of all that was made between the very foundations of the world and the first instant of composing this Immaculate Symphony.
Nothing in creation could have been more beautiful and perfect than the soul of this woman who was destined to simultaneously be God's Daughter and God's Mother in the form of a most pure servant. Venerable Fulton Sheen once said that the Crucifixion of our Lord was a wedding: the union of God and His Church through the Son and His Mother on Mt. Golgotha. We might dare to say, then, it was in the Annunciation that God Proposed to Her by sending His Holy Archangel Gabriel to kneel in front of the soon-to-be Spouse; and after the angel asked Her if She would accept God's Love to enter Her womb, Our Lady said "Yes" in the same way every other woman who ever lived under the heavens has said when accepting a man's engagement ring.
This Immaculate girl was to paint Christ's Perfect humanity with Her own skin tone, Her own hair and Her own eye-color without the mere understanding of God's ungraspable plan of Divine Mystery. Her intact purity of flesh greatly surpassed the cleanliness of the waters which sprung from the mountain peaks of this world. And the light of Her womb would far exceed the light of a thousand sunrises before her birth and of a thousand sunsets after Her Assumption into unceasing Glory.

Have we looked at that Moon wrapped in the blue vests of the night sky? So perfect She Is as to resemble a Holy Eucharist emanating light amidst the darkness of this world. This is because the Most Holy Flesh and Blood of Our Lord came from Her own sacred Body: the Temple in whom God found nourishment for nine months and thirty-three years.
The Blood we drink and the Flesh we eat at Holy Communion come from Her.

She is the Spring and Christ is the River of Life.
She is the Tabernacle and Christ is the Substance.
She is the Temple and Christ is the Verb Made Flesh.

Maria Divine Mercy, Mary, Holy, Virgin, Mother, God, statue, night, moon, Immaculate, ConceptionThe Divinity of Her Son is so incomprehensible as to blind all human beings to His burning rays of Splendor; and so infinite is God's Might as to render all eyes powerless, just as they are during the impossible task of staring into the Sun while painfully watering. Only two eyes have been able to rest their stare unto those glorious rays since the fall of Adam and up until now: these are Mary's windows to Her perfect soul. Just like the Moon, She is wanting to share with us Her Son's light like a mirror whose role is to faithfully reflect Her Baby's Face for our sinful hearts to admire. How could have we seen His Human Face if this woman had not accepted to grant unto God Her own humanity which He, Himself, Created to begin with? How could have Christ preached perfectly if no perfect human attributes were borrowed from Her through Her permission? How could have Christ Saved us from eternal damnation as a pure sacrifice if He had not been dressed by the pure flesh He inherited from Her?
God Made this creature so that the gift of salvation may come through Her and yet, so many of us fail to recognize this Lady as part of this gift. Have you ever received a birthday gift without wrapping paper? Isn't the paper a big part of what makes a gift a joyful surprise? And when we open the gift, do we quickly throw away the paper and forget to thank the giver?
If Our Lord's survival depended on the milk of Mary's breasts, wouldn't we think that we too are in need of that same love? If God Gave to Himself Mary to be His Mother, shouldn't we desire to share the same mom who raised Our Savior? And lastly, if Mary was at the foot of the cross while Our Redeemer was Dying, shouldn't we want Her to be with us at the time of our death?

If we ought to imitate our elder Brother, Jesus Christ, we must strive to do all that He Did from the beginning to the end of His life on Earth.
And if God Almighty came forth from the womb of this Mystical Rose, who are we not to venerate Her as the door through whom He entered our hearts. She raised Him with all the love She had in her soul – a love She had for God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and Earth. And since the Father trusted this most sublime soul to carry and raise His Only Begotten and Most Perfect Son, wouldn't He blindly trust Her to instruct and raise the poor useless sinners that we are?
This Mother of most pure and Immaculate nature offered Herself unto God and willingly accepted the predestined fate of Her heart, which being Joyful as Her Son walked the earth, turned into a Sorrowful One by the end of Her Son's Passion. Seven were the sorrows which perforated Her sinless soul like the iron spades that those Roman Soldiers held while laughing at this naked King.
Framed by Her blood-stained veil, Her face remained motionless at the view of Her Son's agony, while Her pure inner substance swallowed the unfathomably poisonous pain of witnessing man's darkness render Her Holy Baby its own brutally disfigured Victim. During those endless hours of darkness, there wasn't one instant in which Her eyes moved away from that nailed Redemptive Work suspended between men and their Heavenly Father. While some laughed and others wept, it was in Her silent and still stare from below the cross that she mirrored Her Father's silent and still stare from above. Even in that pain She remained completely selfless: unlike the others, never once She thought of herself. Never once She wondered what it will be for Her without Christ on earth. Never once She had pity over Herself for given loss and never once She thought of such as an unfair resolution.
She accepted all of God's mysterious ways in fashions most contrary to our stubborn nature. She allowed the Almighty to make use of Her as a slave in complete submission and service to His Will – always and only. And while always remembering to put God first (therefore, putting all other brothers and sisters first as well) She forgot one person: Herself.

Maria Divine Mercy, MDM, Virgin Mary, Mother of God, Jesus, Holy, Immaculate, Conception, Queen, Rosary

My dear friends: we must learn from Her how to know, love and serve God. Who, better than her, can teach us?
Therefore, our words are the same of all those who came before us. Those words are the same She prophesied long ago when, being in the presence of Elizabeth, She said: "All generations will call me Blessed". And so we say:

~ Hail Mary, full of Grace, the Lord Is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed Is the Fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us, sinners, now. And at the hour of our death.

Amen ~

In gratitude for such Gift, we thank Our Father in Heaven by saying:

~ Father, you prepared the Virgin Mary to be the worthy mother of your Son. You let her share beforehand in the salvation Christ would bring by his death, and kept her sinless from the first moment of her conception. Help us by her prayers to live in your presence without sin. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

Amen ~

    May G9d continue to bless you and your inspiring beautiful articles of the true word of God and your ability explain our Catholic Faith and beliefs better than any I've read. It is truly a gift from God and His love for us guiding your words. God bless and keep all of us safe thru this His last mission to save all souls before the glorious return of Jesus Christ.

    All very nice and touching except for one fact: none of this has any support in the bible. Mary was a wonderful and Godly woman, but she was NOT the "Queen of Heaven" or "co-redemptrix". Please stick to Jesus and the bible.

      Hello John,

      And thank you for the words.

      As you know, if Mary had not said "yes" to God, Redemption would have not come through as It Did. All we know is that without the Woman of whom God Spoke in the Garden and the Woman who, at the end, shall come dressed in the sun, Jesus Christ would have not found another incorrupt body in which He Could Become incorrupt flesh.

      Christ is both perfect Divinity and perfect Humanity:
      The Divinity comes from His Father in Heaven.
      The Humanity comes from His Mother on earth.

      Our Lady is not a Godly woman like any other who was born into sin, for such would insult Our Lord. She is the Mother of the King, and a King's Mother will never be anything less than a Queen.

      When we honor the Queen, we further elevate the already perfect King of all kings: Our Lord, Jesus Christ.

      Thank you again and God Bless +++

    My Dear Beloved Friends, God Loves You! Why? A New Revelation with the Spirit of Truth is here Today to Help All of us know the Truth about God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit, ( The Urantia Book, Revelation 2:17,Free, Online, in all international Languages, and Guided by Archangel Michael, His Trusted Angels, and the Holy Spirit ).A prayer and Blessing for all Good Loving Believers who Wish to share the Truth about Jesus, The Son of God and the Holy Spirit:

    For all the Children who are Ruined by shame

    Mirror child

    The image of a precious dove
    Dancing barefoot on the beach
    Drinking in love and sunshine
    full of smiles
    never having to die.

    Mere child

    Dreaming awhile on a school title
    Learning to carry books for miles.

    Crayons, pencils, stencils
    Nothing you need to do but
    Sing and carry the wind on
    Your wings.

    Mirror child

    Like daddy or mommy
    Carrying so many burdens for
    A little person
    All the time

    Not able
    To catch the spies and
    Spiders.

    Go back to the skies,
    Little dove

    And play with the eagles who tamed this land
    Until you are a spirit so good and pure
    That you will truly guide the directions of our
    Bloodied hands.

    Thumbs Up! True Catholic spotted. Thanks Paul. God Bless You!

      Dear MC,

      We were gladly spotted by the wisdom of your heart. There is a most precious Mother whose greatest desire is Her Son's Dream: to gain all of God's creatures into His Kingdom so as to live Eternity in His love and peace; yet, how many are those who love the Lord but who dismiss His Holy Mother? To us, Catholic Christians, this forgetfulness is inconceivable, so fundamental is Her role in the building of God's Holy City. If the One through Whom all things were made Was Formed in Her Sacred Womb so that He Could Come into our hearts as the Blessed Eucharist, how could we not desire to find hope and rest in the same arms that held up the Child-God with so much reverence?
      Through Her perfection God Told us that the human race can find its grace again through the gift of the redemptive Christ She accepted to receive.
      We must accept to receive Christ in the same way she did: with faith, hope and love.

      God Bless you, my friend. I look forward to meeting you one day soon…after the last trumpet sounds for the return of the TRUE KING: CHRIST JESUS.
      Paul J.

    Your article is very inspiring because of the truth and reality of the events that took place centuries ago. The world needs people like you to remind us that all earthly pleasures are temporary, and that one day we will all go back to our Creator. With all the chaos, people should realize the urgency and the need to go back to God and acknowledge the Truth that without God we are nothing!

      Dear Luz,

      May God Bless and Protect you always. What a gift your words are to me, especially at this time of challenges. Thank you.

      As for our need to go back to the roots of Christianity, we all must come to living the TRUE Word of God which preaches not to enjoy what this world has to offer and to reject it. Surely, if we feed on its sugar every day, we will become too fat to be able to walk through the narrow gate of the Eternal Kingdom of God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
      May we ask, with an open heart, to receive the graces needed to accept what is most contrary to our sinful nature, but which is also the true key to joy and peace on earth and to eternal life after our death. Here are Mother Teresa's words, which so much better explain this:
      "A sacrifice to be real must cost, must hurt, must empty ourselves. The fruit of silence is prayer, the fruit of prayer is faith, the fruit of faith is love, the fruit of love is service, the fruit of service is peace".

      Thank you again for the words, and May God Continue to Bless and Guide you towards Himself +++

    Paul:

    You are a Holy Spirit inspired poet. I have read some of your posted articles and find your writings in such deep unreachable thoughts which I believe only God the Holy Spirit can inspire you. This is a gift from God. May God bless you and your family.

    Thank you.

    First let me say that the pictures you've used to illustrate your post are wonderful, and add to your beautiful words. I had two thoughts while reading this article. I enjoyed the idea that the birth of Christ was the division between the before and after – the year zero, the B.C and A.C., and the old and new testaments. He was the most important person in the history of our world, and to be the mother of such a being sets Mary apart from all others.

    You also note the great example she set. I've always been amazed by her humble acceptance of whatever God asked her to do. First to endure the humiliation and problems caused by agreeing to the immaculate conception, then to have to watch her beloved son grow away from her and eventually suffer and die on the cross, shows a strength of character that few possess. Mary's story will always be an inspiration.

    Dear Paul,
    Thank you for this God inspired work, filled with beautiful truth.
    May you be blessed for your efforts and may Mary be a Mother to you all the days of your eternal life.
    Your Sister in Christ,

      Dear Michele,

      THANK YOU for your words: you give me one more reason to keep writing ~ truly ~
      All I can hope for is that, given the poverty of my language, God May Be Glorified in the midst of the overwhelming chaos of the virtual world of the (spider) web.

      And now, please allow me to return the beautiful blessing you sent, by saying:
      Dear sister in Christ, may you be blessed on your journey and End Times mission by the Hand of Our Father, the Blood of His Son -Our Lord, Jesus Christ- and the Breath of Their Love: the Most Holy Spirit. And, like in every family, may Our Holy Mother hold your hand all the way to the Gates of Paradise.

      Your brother Paul.
