Prayer to Mary
Mary, you welcomed Jesus, you carried Him, gave, presented, sought. For Him you were a woman of faith, a courageous woman, a bosom that welcomed and protected, a woman with time, intelligence, a mother, an educator, the first disciple, open to His mystery, open to His cross, both member and mother of the Church. You made Him your centre, your treasure, the life of your life, the beloved Son, the absolute Lord, God, in our fragile flesh.
