Sunday of the Second Week of Ordinary Time Our Lady is called Virgin most powerful because her Son is God and cannot refuse her anything, as we see in the story of the marriage feast at Cana. Thus, we ought to turn more frequently to Our Lady. Posted in Mary, Ordinary Time, Prayer | Tags: | No Comments
Prayers to the Mother of Jesus October 10th, 2009 Listen Now
Our Blessed Mother never looks to herself, she always points to her Son. In the book of Luke we read that Mary is to be blessed by all generations. Catholic venerate her, that is, honor her because the Bible says we should. If we are with Mary we are certain to be on the sure path to her Son.

Our Lady of Sorrows September 15th, 2009 Listen Now Our Lady suffered with her Son. She, too, felt the blows, the beatings, the nails. To one who loves more, the more they feel the pain of their beloved. While every mother feels the pain of her children, Mary has full of grace, holy, and with perfect love. Thus, with a perfect love of her Son, she felt his pain more. Knowing this, we should accept our pains and offer them up for the salvation of souls.
