And no I’m not talking about that movie. Which to this day I still have never seen and not sure I want to either…although the soundtrack is pretty good. A few weeks ago I went to Theology on Tap that the diocese hosted for young adults and the topic was Mary. The speaker is a deacon/seminarian who will be ordained on May 31st which is one of Mary’s feast days – The Visitation.
I took some notes via evernote last night and here are the parts that I thought important enough to write down:
- No one loved Jesus more than Mary
- She brings our prayers to Jesus/God constantly even weeks, months and YEARS after we’ve prayed to her about the situation/forgotten about the situation. (I really liked this analogy/analysis)
John 2:3-5 ~ The Wedding at Cana ~ “When the wine ran short, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.” [And] Jesus said to her, “Woman, how does your concern affect me? My hour has not yet come.” His mother said to the servers, “Do whatever he tells you.” (I actually belonged to a service ministry in college and “Do whatever he tells you.” was our mission statement.)
“I will put enmity between you and the woman,
and between your offspring and hers;
They will strike at your head,
while you strike at their heel.”
Wow, what an amazing story about the mural and the way Mary reached out to people!
