May 1 – St. Maximilian – Drawing Hearts to Her Motherly Heart

Ave Maria!May’s Theme: Mary Mediatrix

“In order that love for the Son may grow more intensely and, in this way, love for the Father may be aflame more ardently, the love of the Spirit comes to our aid, along with that of the Immaculate, She who is full of mercy, the Mediatrix of all graces, earthly creature like us, who powerfully draws hearts to Herself with Her own Motherly Heart.” (cf. SK #1326)

  • Thank you for sharing these moving reflections on the Blessed Virgin Mother. As a convert to the faith and adoptive mother, I recently published a book entitled “Behold Your Mother: Mary Stories and Reflections from a Catholic Convert” that explains how I never fully understood Mary’s motherly heart until I became a mother myself.

    But through my children, I came to understand that just as my love for them does not depend on their response … so Mary’s love for us does not depend on whether we FEEL loving towards her. She waits for us to turn to her, and then ministers to us as only a mother can.

    God bless you!
