We revere Mary as our Mother

O Virgin Birthgiver, rejoice…
…Mary, full of Grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb,
For thou hast borne the Saviour of our souls!

****

The Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of the Lord, is present in a special way in our life of prayer. Like her, we too ponder God’s Word in our hearts,

We revere Mary as our Mother, and seek to imitate her trustful persevering prayer. In our love for her, we endeavour compassionately to share her sorrow in the mystery of the Cross, chiefly by contemplating the Mysteries of the Holy Rosary. Invoking her help, we are confident that her motherly intercession will win us the graces we need as sons making our way to the Father.

– Passionist Constitutions, 53.
