Our Lady, Help of Christians

“Woman, this is your son.”

John 19:25-27

Today we celebrate the solemnity of Mary’s Help of Christians. What a gift it is that Jesus gave us his mother to be our mother. Along with the Holy Trinity, Mary accompanies us on our faith journey.

Some of us may not pray to Mother Mary that often, but today, Jesus reminds us not to neglect her but to remember that she has been given t to us to help us.

By spending time with Mother Mary in prayer, she will lead us to Jesus, and teach us how to love like Jesus, trusts God, surrender, listen, be obedient, sacrifice, be gentle, compassionate, caring, and most importantly, follow God’s will. It was out of love for us that Jesus gave us his mother; let us open our hearts to her. Do we treat Mother Mary as our mother? What can we learn from Mother Mary?
