A Morning Rosary and a Mother’s Influence – Busted Halo (8/12/20)
Excerpt: “Mary’s ability to comfort and intercede is the entire mission of the Queen of Heaven and earth; the tremendous power of Mary to ask her Son for anything her children need is what we call to mind in the Fifth Glorious Mystery: The Coronation of Mary. This is why Mary’s role is pivotal for the disciple. We bring our needs to her, she listens, receives them, and then calls out her son’s name: “Jesus, come here, I need you.” Like any good son, Christ stands and runs to his mother, because she needs him, and he cannot refuse what she asks of him on our behalf. What we celebrate in the Coronation of the Blessed Mother as queen is both her intimacy with her son, and her proximity to us. “
