"What an immense joy to have Mary Immaculate as our Mother! Every time we experience our frailty and the promptings of evil, we may turn to her and our hearts receive light and comfort. Even in the trials of life, in the storms that cause faith and hope to vacillate, let us recall that we are her children and that our existence is deeply rooted in the infinite grace of God. Although the Church is exposed to the negative influences of the world, she always finds in Mary the star to guide her so that she may follow the route pointed out to her by Christ.” (Pope Benedict XVI) Many people have a difficulty with devotion to Mary. They feel it detracts from Jesus. On the contrary, true devotion to the Mother of God
always leads to the Son. Her admonition to the waiters in Cana, "do whatever he tells you," is the same direction Mary gives us. Nothing means more to her than that Jesus be known and glorified. Who knows Jesus better than his Mother, who not only gave birth to Jesus, but also was at the cross when Jesus gave us the possibility of new birth.
