For the New Year

Christ speaks: "Many love Mary as if she were their Mother . . . I want you to realize that Mary is your true Mother in the supernatural order . . . Mary has given you life--the most real life. She gave it to you at Nazareth, on Calvary, and in your Baptism. At Nazareth she conceived you, in conceiving Me. . . . By consenting to give Me life, she also consented to give it to you. In becoming My Mother, she became yours. . . . 

I was the Head and you were a member. Mary bore us both; though in different ways, in her maternal womb; for the members and the Head have not a separate existence."

--Fr. Emil Neubert, My Ideal: Jesus, Son of Mary
