MARY, MOTHER OF THE CHURCH

Acts 1:12-14; Judith 13:18-19; John 19:25-27

Mary present in the Church

Mary was present at the major events of Jesus life. She was obviously there at his birth. She stood by the cross as he died and she was present with the disciples when he ascended to heaven. Mary was also among those named in today’s reading who had gathered for prayer in the upper room in Jerusalem when the Holy Spirit came at Pentecost. That event is observed as the beginning of the Church. Mary remains present in the Church today, especially through our devotion to her.
