Assumption Countdown ~ Day Five

Chinese Mary with Infant Christ

SOME CHRISTIANS SAY THEY CANNOT  pray to Mary. So then, pray with Mary. Mary prayed in the upper room with the disciples; she prays still. But what does she pray about? She undoubtedly gives thanks for God's wonders. She prays in awe before the God who brings life out of seemingly impossible places. She praises God for his surprises and reversals. She celebrates God's mercies as we make choices with sometimes disastrous consequences. And she prays for us - that we would be God-bearers too, keeping Christ at the center.

Do you notice in the image that Mary is not looking at Jesus, but away? It is as if she has noticed me on the side, and at once she turns to introduce me to her Son.


  1. She is most beautiful however She comes to me..

  2. It is interesting to see how cultures other than our own picture the Blessed Mother with Jesus. Blessed be her Holy Name all throughout the world.
