Recently, like never before, I have been coming closer to the Blessed Virgin Mary, as if being drawn to her. Praying the Rosary is burning higher within me, (until recently, I’ve never been a big “fan” of it, my mind wanders easily and it was difficult to focus), thinking about her messages in the approved apparitions excites me, but over all . . . realizing, truly realizing that she is our Mother, that our Lord Christ Jesus had given us, our Spiritual Mother, blows me away tenfold!!! I mean . . . wow! :o Scott Hahn’s book “Hail, Holy Queen” has really shaken me up in a good way.
To know that she cares for us like a Mother, is concerned for us, intercedes for us, and reigns over us as our Queen, our loving most holy righteous Queen—made righteous by the blood of Christ, who preserved her from all stain of sin by His grace, scarcely can I fathom. God, my (our) Bridegroom has opened my eyes to this wonderful Truth and I feel utterly in love with her now, like never before, like a child loves his/her mother, I love her as my Spiritual Mother, and I dearly hope she’ll continue interceding for me to my Lord God and Saviour Jesus Christ—my first and foremost love whom I worship.
To experience Catholicism is to see Christianity in a most wondrous and beautiful light. We are a family, such an enormous family. The Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit–God, our Spiritual Mother He gaves us, Mary, the Saints and all of us struggling to make it there on earth by His grace. I dearly hope we all find Him, oh dear Lord, I can’t fathom the thought of not having Him, being with Him, loving Him as a Bride loves her spouse, for He is our spouse, and His spouse our Queen, and all of us brothers and sisters.
God bless :o
