My letter (prayer) to Mary
You are the Mother of God and my mother too. You were the perfect Mother and the perfect disciple. Mary, you were the one chosen (handpicked) by God from all time and all woman to be the Mother of God.
You are the precious vessel and the way my Lord entered the world.
You have always done the “will of our heavenly Father” and are by Jesus’ definition, His “brother, and sister, and mother” (His loyal servant, follower and disciple).
Please pray for me that I may always be a loyal follower of your Son, as you are. You have shown me how to Love your Son.
You are the Mother of God and Jesus’ disciple. You are the only person who ever lived that was with Jesus from the beginning, until the end at the foot of His cross.
You held the baby Jesus in your arms, loving Him and protecting Him, never letting Him go, until he was taken from you at the Cross. You never denied him or left Him. You remained quite because you knew that you would have to suffer so that the rest of mankind might be saved.
You were there in the upper room during Pentecost!
As for your name in scripture, there exists not a single word against you. There is no finer example of a person who has completely surrendered himself to the will of God, as you Mary.
You were truly, madly in love with your Son Jesus and who from the beginning; you knew He was “God with us”. Your perfect expression of surrender, “May it be done to me according to your word” is the source of my strength.
Mary, you kept many things in your heart and reflected on them, you truly knew the Lord before any of the apostles and He knew you.
When you brought the baby Jesus to Simeon, His destiny was revealed to you; before any other disciples knew, you knew!
“A sword pierced your own heart, so that the thoughts of many hearts would be known”. I can only imagine how you suffered and the strength you must have needed to continue on to the very end, to the foot of the cross.
I love you Mary, thank you.
You encouraged Him at the wedding at Cana, the point in which your Son Jesus and our Lord began His ministry, you sad, “do as He says”, may these words always be a reminder to me to, “do as He says”
You loved Jesus with all of your heart, all of your soul, all of your mind and all of your strength. Has there been anyone as devoted to my Lord, as you? Blessed Mary, the Lord is with you, you are blessed among all women and all generation will consider you blessed. You have been reunited with your Lord, how sweet that must be. Mary, my mother, please pray for me that the Lord have mercy on me a sinner and that one day I can come home to the Lord.
Thank you Mary and pray for me that I may always think of your great example of love, sacrifice and surrender. One cannot think about you, Mary without thinking about your son Jesus. I am madly in love with you and I am madly in love with your son, my lord Jesus Christ. May my focus allows be on Christ, as you were always focused on Him.
Your son and Christ’s loyal follower,*
