PODCAST | Mary, The Most Sweet Name
On September 12th the Church celebrates the feast of the Most Holy Name of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
On today’s podcast we reflect on Mary’s role and mission as a mother to give us the very best:
- To help us in all of our needs– physical, emotional, and spiritual.
- To unite us with her Son, Jesus Christ.
- To win for us the grace to desire to be saints.
Mary shows us that we can have confidence in her intercessory prayers when she spoke to the servants at the wedding in Cana, “Do whatever he tells you” (John 2:5). And that we can trust that she will see that our prayers are answered as long as they are compatible with God’s plan for our salvation.
Our goal, therefore, is to imitate Mary’s holiness. We ask her to be a part of our spiritual life– helping us to connect with her son, Jesus Christ, and to become instruments of evangelization, serving and attracting others to Him.
