(I received this in an e-mail today and thought I’d share it with all of you … To all of the moms who I’ve come to know via the blog world, I hope you all have a beautiful day! Thank you for embracing your vocation and inspiring me in mine.)
No one can start a child’s day off on the right foot like a mother. And no one can better help us prayerfully welcome the daylight in preparation for the joys and sufferings of the day ahead like our Blessed Mother.
St. Julian Eymard says, “Kind Mother, come with me, for a mother always accompanies her child. Without you, I shall not know what to say to Jesus.”
Precisely! No one knows the child like the mother, therefore, no one knows Jesus like Mary. She is the key to a richer interior life. She can help us grow in communion with Jesus.
… Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
