Memorial of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of the Church
“In a wholly singular way she [Mary] cooperated by her obedience, faith, hope, and burning charity in the work of the Savior in restoring supernatural life to souls. For this reason she is mother to us in the order of grace.”
-Vatican Council II, Lumen Gentium
Today we ponder and celebrate Mary’s special role as mother of the Church. How does her example inspire you to God’s invitation to carry Christ in the womb of your heart?
