MOTHER OF GOD, QUEEN OF HEAVEN, MOTHER TO THE HUMAN RACE
The (Doctrine of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin) affirms that together with the nature which she inherited from her parents, that is her own nature, she had a complete fullness of Grace, and that from the first moment of her existence. Is it surprising then that on one hand she should be Immaculate in her Conception? Or on the other hand that she should be Honoured with an Assumption and exalted as a Queen? Only God and he alone has an entrance into our souls, speaks to our heart, applies to us personal spiritual strength and pardon. Mary only our Mother by Divine appointment. So as the Mother of God, Mother of Humanity, she is also Mother of the Eucharist. She knows what it means for us to be with God, in the way he is offered in the Eucharist. For this reason she invites us to live the Eucharist, so that Mass is life and life is Mass. Let us never forget that our Holy Mother’s work is not one of Administration toward us, her power is indirect. It is her prayers as the Mother of our Saviour that benefits us in our daily struggles.
