Maternal charity

May 9
“By her maternal charity, [Mary] cares for the brethren of her Son, who still journey on earth surrounded by dangers and difficulties, until they are led into their blessed home. Therefore the Blessed Virgin is invoked in the Church under the titles of Advocate, Helper, Benefactress, and Mediatrix.”
-Documents of Vatican II, Lumen Gentium, 62
Today's Reflection:
How does this statement define Mary’s spiritual maternity and her role in the salvation of souls? Consider Mary’s selection by God to be the mother of His Son. In light of Sacred Scripture, how did she care for Him physically, emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually? What does this tell you about her maternal beatitude toward you and her role in your own salvation? Tomorrow’s Grace Line tells you about one way Mary carries out her mission.
