2020MMOTCWeb300Today we celebrate Mary as Mother of the Church. It is a reminder of the special place Mary has in the community of believers. In the Gospel of John, Jesus entrusts Mary into John’s care. There is a sense of intimacy and companionship between Mary and John who stands for the new community of Jesus.

Luke also gives us the image of Mary gathered in prayer with the disciples as they await the coming of the Holy Spirit. Again, we are struck by the intimacy and closeness between Mary and this first group of believers.

Mary, as a constant companion on our journey of faith, shows us how to live fully the life of the Spirit, how to let the very life of God grow inside us, how to touch the world with God’s life and love.
