Charism

BE. LIVE. TESTIFY.

The consecration of our life to Mary, Mother of God, is the basis of our spirituality. We begin every day with this intention, this interior act, this prayer: “Virgin Immaculata, I received you as a gift of Jesus from the cross and I entrust myself to you.” This is the expression of our charism, the special “gift” we have received from God to share. 
Before his death on the Cross, Jesus gave us his Mother and entrusted each one of us to her love and tenderness, as John recounts in his Gospel: “Woman, behold your son,”“Behold your mother” (John 19:26). It was the peak of God’s love for the salvation of the world. Therefore, in receiving this Word, we have heard the call to live it in the depths of our being, in our style of life, through witness and service. The consecration to Mary, when welcomed within us, interiorly transforms us into Mary, in a constant and gradual way, as in the life of Saint Maximilian Kolbe. This is our greatest desire, our goal, our ideal: to be Mary. No one lived for God and of God more than she. 

 

 

Close-up

There’s a prayer I pray daily with a line in it that took me a long time to begin to understand: Passion of Christ, my comfort be. My logic was that the passion of the Lord was a sad event where Jesus was crushed because of my sins. I didn’t see the comfort in knowing that I was responsible for his suffering. Perhaps some people think that way about today’s memorial: Our Lady of Sorrows. After all, it’s the story of a Mother that suffered her entire motherhood in deep ways. Yet, it brings solace to many.
