Mary’s prayer is full of the prayers of so many mothers today…
The plea of the mother whose child is in the grip of a terrible illness.
The desperation of the mother whose child is crying out for food, when in so many parts of the world today there is nothing left to eat.
The torment of the mother whose child has taken up arms against his brothers, or has taken to the sea to flee to a high-risk El Dorado.
The helplessness of the mother whose child has lost his way in drugs, delinquency and the violence of recent days.
Jesus, Mary’s prayer is full of the prayers of these mothers who feel understood, listened to and comforted by her.
Lord, listen and hear the prayer of your Mother!
