Praying with Mary

Even more so than Paul and the other saints, Mary is someone who can testify: “… I live, but not I, it is Christ who lives in me.” (see Galatians. 2.20). Indeed, Mary knows what it means to live in communion of the Holy Trinity: she is the daughter of the Father, the mother of the Son, and the bride of the Spirit.

In all stages of her life, Mary said her “yes.” “No one better than Mary can give us more help to look at Christ … it is the sad look of a woman, when she stands on Golgotha, under the cross. It is the radiant look on Easter morning, filled with the joy of the Risen One, and the passionate look at the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. “(Acts 1:14).
(John Paul II, Apostolic Letter “Rosarium Virginis Maria – The Rosary of the Virgin Mary”, No. 10, 2002.). To pray the Rosary is exactly that, it is following the way of faith in Jesus Christ just as Mary did.”

In the first chapter of the Gospel of Matthew, the angel says: “Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your bride. The child born of her is of the Holy Spirit.” (Mt 1,20) In the last chapter of the Gospel of John we read: “When Jesus saw his mother, and the beloved disciple, he said: ‘Woman behold your son;’ and then to the disciple, ‘Behold your mother.’ From that hour, the disciple took her into his own home. ” (John 19:26 to 27). Can it clearer?
