not only carries a child in her womb for nine months, but she also carried her child in her heart till her death. A child may throw out his/her mother in her old age. But the mother can never throw out a child at any age!

Mary – the courageous mother of humanity

Mary took up her motherhood with a challenging announcement from God. It was not

an easy motherhood. But it had been a heroic motherhood from the beginning.

Blessed Virgin Mary had to protect the child with utmost care. She had to deliver her baby in unusual circumstances where she could not even find a place for delivery. It was a manger where she had to lay down the baby. She had to run to Egypt, taking infant Jesus to protect him from Herod’s sword.

Every day she had to meet with challenges as foretold by Simeon, the old man of Jerusalem Temple. She kept everything in her heart, meditating the Redemption plan of God!

A mother on the Way of the Cross

What would have been the torture to a loving mother to follow her innocent son who had to face trial and torture just because he had been “doing good to all people”. She stood under the cross on Calvary, looking at the greatest sufferings of her beloved son.

Mother Mary, the heroic mother of history is the mother of all mothers. She is the intercessor of the whole humanity.
