I rejoiced when I heard them say:
"let us go to God's house."
When the designated time has come, God sent forth his son born of a woman, born under the law, to deliver from the law those who were subjected to it, so that we might receive our status as adopted sons. Galations 4:4-5
Seeing his mother there with there with the disciple whom he loved, Jesus said to his mother, Woman, there is your son." John 19:26-27
In her whole life this virgin mother showed herself as an example of that motherly love that must animate all who share in the apostolic mission of the church for the regeneration of mankind. (Lemen gentium 63-65)
You made Mary full of grace, grant all men the joyful abundance of you grace. Make your church of one mind and one heart in love, and help all those who believe, to be one in prayer with Mary, the mother of Jesus.
