A reflection – In Praise of Mary.

Mary, our Mother, you are our beacon light in a dark world;
A globe, resting securely in your caring hands
as you offer it with confidence to a loving Father;
A world enfolded in the robe of your maternal compassion;
A serpent, crushed beneath your feet,
triumphantly proclaiming victory over evil,
evil of sin, of selfishness, of injustice, of oppression.
