Clothed with the Son … Wednesday, March 13

Mary (Mother of Jesus)

A Rosary Meditation … The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary into Heaven. “And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun.” Revelation 12:1. In Revelation 1:16b John, in describing Jesus, says, “and His countenance as the sun shines in its power.” Mother Mary is clothed with and reflects the Glory of God. We think about Mary and about our relationship with her and her Son. We think about their relationship, the One with the other. People might wonder why Jesus would take Mary, body and soul, into Heaven. When you’ve much to celebrate don’t you want to share your joy with family? Do you invite them over for a happy get together? When you’re ill isn’t it a comfort to have someone who’s close to you there with you during your illness? Have you ever asked a family member to come be with you when you’re not feeling well? Why would Jesus take Mary to be with Him in Heaven? Where else would He want her to be? You know, their relationship didn’t end at the crucifixion. It grew. You’ll notice John says that a “great sign appeared in heaven.” GREAT. This ain’t small potatoes here folks. Jesus loves His mother enough that He wants her to be with Him. In our day-to-day living, by our actions, do we send God the message that we want to be with Him and her too?

Today … St. Macedonius. Martyr with Modesta and Patricia, at Nicomedia. They were husband, wife, and daughter. In some lists they were martyred with nineteen companions. Family, all together in Heaven with our one true family.

And so … I hope my posts are coherent. I’m sick as a dog. I’ve always wondered why people say that. Why sick as a dog? Why not sick as an aardvark? Oh, well. I don’t feel like doing very much so I come up with stuff like sick dogs and aardvarks. Just one more reason I need to feel better.
