Mary our mother of hope and protection

Mother Mary is the mother of all on earth; she is our protection and comfort. The numbers of people who flock to her are increasing. She brings everyone who approaches her to Christ. We are living in a world where the values of family, love and prayerful life have become things of the past. It is at such a time that Mother Mary shows us that the love of God and others are the 2 faces of experiencing God.

At the foot of the cross on Calvary, Jesus pointed to Mother Mary and told John, ‘Here is your Mother.’ From then on Mother Mary became the mother of all. We should all accept this Mother as our mother and obey her.

Anyone who loves and trusts Jesus cannot stay away from respecting and accepting Mother Mary. Because the mother of Jesus is our mother too. Those who cannot accept Mary as one’s mother cannot accept God as one’s Father. The people who understand and accept Mary as one’s mother are the ones who take part in Marian celebration and visit the Marian pilgrim centers.

We are living in a world which is spiraling into a path of destruction and it is now more than ever we need to pray. We detest anything that has to do with God. Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings (1 Peter 5: 8-9). We need to raise our eyes in prayers to the Lord and seek the protection of Mary our Mother.

We are living in the time of New Evangalization, a world dreamt by Pope John Paul, laid the foundations by Pope Benedict and given shape by Pope Francis. Mother Mary reminds the Church and the faithful to turn to her protection recognizing the signs of the world and is calling us to a renewal of faith.

As we go in search of trees bearing fresh fruits, millions flock to Mother Mary seeking and hoping to attain all that the heaven has to offer. She comes as a source of comfort to all those who seek her in their times of trials and temptations. Because no one who trusted or hoped in her have never been destroyed.

We should flock to Mother Mary if we need to overcome the temptations this world has to offer, because when we pray through the intercession of Mother Mary we are assured of the protection of Jesus. So let us hold on to this mother who shows us the way and let us love and trust her with all our heart and mind.

She will lead us in the way of spirituality and give us the strength to face all the trials and tribulations in our life. She will teach us to lead a life with an aim and stand by us as she stood by Christ at Calvary. She will guide us to take the right decision in our lives. Let us place our hope in her and she will lead us to the heavens. Let us pray: Mother Mary, fill us with your grace so that we may seek the will of God always in our lives.
