Mary's role as advocate

May 10
“Mary exercises her role as ‘Advocate’ by co-operating both with the Spirit, the Paraclete, and with the One who interceded on the Cross for his persecutors (cf. Lk 23:24), whom John calls our ‘advocate with the Father’ (1 John 2:1). As a mother, she defends her children and protects them from the harm caused by their own sins.”
-St. John Paul II
Today's Reflection:
According to Pope John Paul II, what is the nature of Mary’s advocacy in her maternal role? To whom does she advocate for us or defend us? Why? What does she obtain for us through each? What makes her such an effective intercessor? What is your area of greatest need today? Ask Mary to be your advocate.
