God is Love, and we live in a communion of Love. A good disciple is one who follows God’s commands. The most important of which is “Love the Lord Your God, with all your Heart, with all you Soul and with all your Mind. And your neighbour as yourself”. We may be on earth and they in heaven, but are we not also neighbours?
Mary is the primary disciple of Christ and the greatest example of discipleship, the rest of the disciples in heaven have to be lovers of God in order to obey his will. God instructs us to be perfect as He is perfect, to love as we love ourselves, and as good children and disciples of God would Mary and Saints and the Souls in Heaven not love us in the same way God instructs? What’s more, even here on earth, are there conditions to the love we give ourselves? Certainly we do not say, “I’d love myself only if I get into one of the Ivies or Oxbridge; I’d love myself only if I were more attractive etc…” We love ourselves because we are, that is the same love we are instructed to give to others because they are. Would not the people in Heaven do that?
What’s more, Mary is entrusted to us as our mother and we her children, we might wonder at the love of a sibling but what of the love of a mother? Do not forget these are people who are in Heaven - Heaven is more full of love than whatever we can contemplate on earth.
Hope it helps
