She is a woman who has transformed lives through the centuries. Her life is a transcript of Grace, fullness of Grace, biography of Grace and an unreserved reception of Grace. Therefore, she is a Celebration of divine grace which represents humanity’s destiny. Hence all generations call her Blessed (Lk. 1:48).
She is the greatest tribute to the highest pinnacle of possibilities of human reception and cooperation with grace. No wonder she exclaimed” be it done to me according to that will (Lk. 1:38).
She is a bride without wrinkles and spots (Ephesians 5:7), a woman of Genesis 3:15, a woman of promise and fulfilment (Is. 7:10-15), a woman clothed with the sun (Rev 12:1), and the Mother of the Word made flesh (Gal.4:4).
Her magnificat (Lk. 1:46-55), demonstrates that she understands and appreciates her role in the web of human Relationships which is a never ending enterprise as long as her motherhood is Everlasting. And her blessedness is intimately connected with with her Relationship with Jesus Christ as both Spiritually and biologically rooted in total submission to God’s Word (Lk. 11:28).
Devotion to Mary is only a response to God’s example. Loving Mary takes nothing away from her Son. Honoring her is only a tribute to Christ who saved her in anticipation for our salvation. Grace explains the Mystery of Mary and it is a privilege to be counted among those who call her Blessed.
If Jesus came to us through Mary, why should we find it difficult to go to Jesus through her?. If God honoured her first through Angel Gabriel, why should we not do same? If Jesus could perform his first miracle because of her, why should we not seek her intercession?
