Entering into the profound mystery of God’s love means learning how to live within the Holy Spirit. The blessed Virgin Mary whom we call Mother of God (Theotokos) is a sure guide to her Son: she is at the same time Mother and disciple of Christ as well as an attentive Mother to all.
The Virgin Mary, an Example for Us
Saint Pope Paul VI explains in his apostolic exhortation “Signum Magnum” from May 13th, 1967:
“Furthermore, it is well to bear in mind that Mary's eminent sanctity was not only a singular gift of divine liberality. It was also the fruit of the continuous and generous cooperation of her free will in the inner motions of the Holy Spirit.”
She is therefore a model for those wanting to live in the Holy Spirit.
The Virgin Mary, an attentive Mother
The blessed Mother is attentive to the development of divine life in our souls: she is a sure guide to her Son.
Let us therefore enter into this divine life by contemplating the great virtues of Mary and the way in which we can in our turn live within the Holy Spirit.
