MARIAN FEASTS IN THE GENERAL ROMAN CALENDAR
MEDITATING ON THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY, MOTHER OF GOD AND GOD'S LOVE
THE ETERNAL HOLY TRINITY, ONE GOD...the Creator...who creates...
The obedient young virgin - who was pledged to be married to righteous and faithful Joseph, a descendant of David.
Thus by the two immaculate conceptions, the stain of Adam's sin, the original sin, was never to touch the grace of the Messiah or His Mother
The humble young virgin, Mother of God in chastity, holiness and transparancy... showered her spontaneous out-pouring of the Holy Spirit, together with the outburst of inspirational praise from Elizabeth.
The faithful wife who esteemed the love from her husband Joseph; cared for him; looked after him when he was sick; mourned his death.
The supportive Mother, who was nurtured herself by the Risen Christ in the consecrated bread and wine during the Celebration of the Eucharist by the chosen Apostles - by then, empowered by the Holy Spirit, breathed upon them by Jesus Himself !
