As it says in Rev. 12:1-10, “She gave birth to a son…. Her child was snatched up to God and His throne…. Now have salvation and power come … and the authority of Christ the Anointed One.”
Even though Mary was the mother of Jesus and he respected her authority as a parent, she freely gave herself over to His authority from the moment she said “yes, let it be done to me as the Father wills” and Jesus was conceived by the power of the Holy spirit. How fully have we let Jesus be in authority over us? Let us ask the Blessed Mother to help us put aside our own will when it conflicts with His.
Blessed are you among women,
and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners
now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen!
|Together we pray:|
Oh my Jesus, forgive us our sins,
save us from the fires of hell;
lead all souls to Heaven,
especially those most in need of Your Mercy.
