Mary

“My tongue hesitates and falter
as I pronounce, Mother of God”

Is God all that is and that is all?
Our ideas of God don’t assure us;
Infinite, Eternal, Being, He

Mary’s fiat gives God’s son a mom
These ideas content us; full of grace,
most highly favored, and blessed by God.

Immaculate heart and fervent soul
Embracing closely, guiding freely
Holding tightly, protecting fiercely

We should mimic her humility;
Present in pained hope and aching joy,
Like her, be fierce, firm, free, and safe,

Accept the wound with heartfelt sadness
The suffering-with produces trust
Her fiat gives us a mother too

“Dear woman, here is your child,” and to
the disciple, “Here is your mother.”
