Mary brings us to the heart of her Son

 “Since Mary is rightly to be regarded as the way by which we are led to Christ, the person who encounters Mary cannot help but encounter Christ likewise” (Mense Maio, Blessed Pope Paul VI).

Jesus so loved his mother that his last thoughts on the Cross were of her. He gave her to us as our own mother, and wants us to honor her. ?

For her “yes.” Without fully understanding what God intended, she unhesitatingly agreed to become his mother. Her “yes” made it possible for God to become human and be crucified for our salvation. Following her example means saying “yes” to whatever God asks.

For her sacrifice. Wouldn’t you be forever grateful to someone who gave up her child so that you and your loved ones might live? Mary loved her amazing child and she experienced unspeakable heartache as he was sacrificed for us. Praying the Rosary regularly reminds us of the life of Jesus and the desire of his Mother to bring us close to his heart.
