You can’t get too much of a good thing when it comes to loving our Blessed Mother. She wants nothing better to have us join her in heaven because that is what is pleasing to God. So the more we turn to her, the more she will be able to help us. Here are 10 reasons to increase our love for the Mother of God. (1) Loving Mary is pleasing to God.
We cannot outdo God and no one has ever loved and honored Mary more than God has. God the Father chose her to be the Mother of his only Son; she is the spouse of the Holy Spirit, and mother to God’s only begotten Son. (2) She is nothing.
Therefore, she is everything. “As the most humble handmaid of the Lord who is "full of grace," Mary was the perfect instrument of God because she was nothing else but his instrument,” Thomas Merton. (3) It’s a way to imitate Jesus.
Jesus follows the Fourth Commandment and honors his mother so we should too. (4) It’s a way to imitate the saints.
I never met a saint who didn’t love and honor Mary. Many of them were rarely without a rosary handy. (5) Mary has a proven track record.
Jesus performed his first public miracle because his mother asked. He said it was not his time yet, but his mother asked for help. The Bible is clear—Mary influences her Son. (6) It’s Scriptural to Include Mary.
The Blessed Mother was part of the incarnation, birth, first miracle, passion, and the death of Jesus and with the apostles for the descent of the Holy Spirit. It is believed that she was present during Our Lord’s Ascension. The first part of the Hail is from Scripture and is centered on Jesus. Jesus and Mary go together. (7) It’s historical.
During Old Testament times, it was the Queen—the king’s mother in those days—who people went to with their requests. The best chance at getting a good answer from the king was to run it by his mother. That’s the way it was done during King David’s time and Jesus is descended from the House of David. Continue... 👇👇👇
