From the Grand Lady – Reflection On The Immaculate Conception
I bring you warm fraternal greetings from the Grand Court.
For some reason, many good Catholics never really come to understand while it is so necessary for Christians to pray to the mother of Jesus, Mary and give the blessed mother a vital role in the life of faith. The answer appeals when we acknowledge the fundamental truth that, in other to love God in the way that he deserves, in other for our prayers to be worthy and acceptable to God we must first be possessed of true purity of heart.
Without that purity of heart, our attend to approach God remains bound to failure. For Jesus promises only the pure of heart will see God. (Mattew 5:8, Genesis 4:4-5). In the mystery of the Immaculate Conception, God reveals the core and key truth about all human purity. Thus, in Mary Immaculate we see the embodiment of absolute, sanctified purity of heart which Mary as our mother gives us before God. That truth about Mary’s immaculate heart obliges us Marshallans to remain deeply united to Mary whose love of God will refashion our heart as we repent reform and become children of God. The key to truth purity, then is actively, fervently allowing the immaculate heart of Mary to love us through our devotion to her.
As Marshallans, we should strive to live at peace with one another. We must be prayerful to grow in the faith and to overcome all temptations we might encounter in our daily lives.
Keep the Blessed Mother before you as you as your model, look into her heart and note her thoughts and sentiments. She is our model in the task of hearing and keeping God’s word.
May Our Lady, Queen of Marshallans continue to intercede for us.
May this Month be a blessing to every aspect of our lives. Amen
I wish you a Happy Feast, God’s abundant blessings and all the best.
Thank You and God Bless.
MRL Sister Margaret Yirenkyi.
