Mary, mother of Christ, mother of the church

Virgin MaryI want to share with you what the Catholic Church's catechism says about our spiritual mother. In May and October, we give Mary extra glory in praying the Rosary, Virgin Mary's litany, bringing flowers and candles, and doing good deeds.

"About the Virgin Mary's Role in the Mystery of Christ and the Holy Spirit: We shall not take her place in the mystery of the Church. Virgin Mary is recognized and honoured as the true Mother of God and Redeemer. Yes, she is truly a mother of Christ's limbs. For she has contributed with her love that the believers, who belong to him as a limb to his head, were born in the church. Mary is the Mother of Christ and the Mother of the Church.
Mary's role in relation to the church cannot be separated from her unity with Christ, but is based on it. The mother's union with the Son in his salvation is acknowledged from the moment Christ was conceived in her virgin body and until his death."

It is springtime. We see crocuses, blue anemones and snowdrops. Every specie has their nice colours. We must remember to see everything that lives and is beautiful in the creation!
Yes, we can share this pleasure with others. We do not have to say anything. We let God talk to us. We look and enjoy the sunrays.

Mary, you who have said yes to being the mother of Jesus and our mother, thank you for being with us and helping and supporting us in our lives. Help us also to share with others the good in ourselves, in the moments we need it.

Amen.

Når jeg ikke ser den.

Når jeg går sakte, sakte ...

Når vi er i en vanskelig tid.

Når jeg går forbi noe som hindrer.

Når jeg lærer av andre.

Når alt går bra.

Når jeg velger den rette veien.

Når Gud hjelper oss å finne, 
den rette veien i våre liv.


Herre, kan du være med oss ...

Herre, vi vil være som blomster som åpner seg og sprer vellukt.
Slik vil vi selv åpne våre hjerter til Ditt lys. Lyset gir nåde.

 

I forbindelse med festen for Hellige Birgitta 23. juli.

Vi ber med Birgittas ord:

 

Vis meg veien.

Kom snart og lys opp i min natt!

Som en døende lengter,

Slik lengter jeg etter deg.

Si til min sjel,

at intet du tillater, er uten håp.

Å, Jesus, Guds sønn.

Taus sto du foran dine dommere.

Gi meg å tie inntil jeg har besinnet meg,

på hva jeg skal si og hvordan jeg skal tale.

Vis meg veien, og gjør meg villig til å gå videre.

Så oppfyll da min lengsel og vis meg veien.

Jeg kommer til Deg som den sårete kommer til legen.

Herre, gi mitt hjerte ro.
