I receive a daily e-mail thought from Women of Grace. It’s called Grace Lines and it is “Inspirational Words for Thought and Reflection”. I received this the other day and thought it marvelously contemplative of just how important Mary’s role is in Christianity.
“Mary acquired a very special relation with God. The blood of Jesus, the heart of Jesus and the body of Jesus are formed by the blood of Mary. By adoring the blood, the sacred wounds and the heart of Jesus, we adore something proceeding from Mary which was assumed by the Son of God.”
Blessed James Alberione
What a marvelous reflection and something to truly ponder. Christ was also begotten of Mary and obtained his physical body through her as well. What a reflection to understanding the active role she played in delivering the Savior to the world. Not only that, but because Jesus is from her body they are tied together eternally by those bonds.
