LUMEN GENTIUM , 1964
Mary's role in God's plan becomes clearer as we turn the pages of the Bible.
In Genesis, Mary is the woman who will be an
enemy of the serpent,
the woman whose offspring will defeat Satan
In Isaiah, Mary is the virgin whose Son will be called Emmanuel
In the Gospels, Mary is the mother whose Son is "God Saves", "Jesus"
God chose Mary to incarnate his Son.
If we want to incarnate Jesus in our lives,
we need to imitate Mary's example, her faith,
her courage, her willingness to help others,
her humility, her prayerfulness
Jesus, thank you for putting a tender love of
deep in our hearts. May that love never go out.
Mary, please help us incarnate Jesus in our daily lives
