The Mother of God is also our mother

 

We should thank God that we have Virgin Mary as intercessor, as our help. We should not forget and trust that: “what God can do in his might, the Mother of God can do through her payer”.

Part of the word of advice we receive in church are about the Mother of God and some of the most common are to mention her in our prayers and to give her glory. We should thank God for these gifts of our Church, and that we have the Mother of God as our loving mother.

We should thank God that we have Virgin Mary as intercessor, as our help. We should not forget and trust that: “what God can do in his might, the Mother of God can do through her payer”.

Let’s follow as much as possible her example so that the blessing of Christ be upon us now and forever. Amen!
