December 11 - Our Lady of Consolation (Italy)
At the foot of Jesus' cross stood Mary his mother. She was a beautiful image of fidelity and comfort for the One who was dying, seemingly abandoned by God and men.
By entrusting the disciple whom he loved to her, Jesus was at the same time entrusting to her the nascent Church and, through her, the whole human race. As she offered herself to console her Son, Mary was given to all people as their consoler.
In celebrating her as consoler of the afflicted today, we receive her from Jesus' lips as the mother of all believers and mother of all humanity. With faith and trust, we turn to her and pray to her for all people.
