The Blessed Mother

She did not waver when called upon by an angel of God.
She endured the scorn of pregnancy before marriage.
She was committed and joyful.

She rode on a donkey when over nine months pregnant.
She rode for hundreds of miles.
She labored in straw.
She gave birth next to livestock.

She relished our Lord.
She cared for his every first need.
She exalted Him and allowed for others to do the same.
She protected Him.
She brought Him up to be the King of Kings, Lord of Lords, and humblest of servants.

She was Mary, Christ's mother; our mother.
Thank you, Mary, for showing us the way to Christ.
