Beloved Apostle in his letter says:"Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God abideth in him, and he in God.(1John 4,15). For those who were faithful in applying this rule to their conduct we call Apostles. And Mary is their Queen! Our Lady Immaculate professed always Divinity of Jesus even in the most sorrowful moments of His Passion when she saw Him in indescribable misery and infirmity. Her faith in Him was not wavering at the manger in Bethlehem nor during the flight to Egypt, nor in the sorrows of exile, nor in the hard work in the workshop in Nazareth. Her faith was always firm, in particular when He was bound and scourged at the pillar, crowned with thorns, when He was treated as the worst criminal and was sentenced to the ignominious death, when He was cruelly dragged to meet this end up the Golgotha Hill. His friends abandoned Him, but Mary faithfully followed Him professing His Divinity, and although He was bleeding to death on the ignominious gibbet as a traitor and malefactor, Mary even for an instant did not stop believing in Him and remained close to the cross as if she would like to say to the whole world: Look, at the One on the cross who as a worm writhes dying in pain, He is truly the Son of the living God, Jesus Christ, to whom all glory and honour for ever! Run quickly to join the Queen's school of the apostles!!
Our Lady Immaculate through her perfect conduct wanted to inculcate in our soul the word of Redeemer: "blessed is he that shall not be scandalized in me."(Matt 11,6). Is our faith strong enough to keep and follow these words? Shall we be faithful to these word if we witness other Christians faults and in particular those chosen servants of God. Shall we keep them every time we see abuses in the Church or in Religion? Shall we usually chop the whole apple tree because of one rotten apple found there? Immaculate Mother speak to us also with these words of the Redeemer: " For he that shall be ashamed of me, and of my words, in this adulterous and sinful generation: the Son of man also will be ashamed of him, when he shall come in the glory of his Father with the holy angels"(Mark 8, 38). That is why we should always in every Catholic action profess our Redeemer and our faith in Him and His Church, exactly as His Blessed Mother did, openly, devoutly and without hesitation. Even if we expect troubles in return, nobody will disrespect us for this. For for the fortitude and fervent faith we shall got out reward: For if thou confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in thy heart that God hath raised him up from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For, with the heart, we believe unto justice; but, with the mouth, confession is made unto salvation.(Rom 10, 9-10)
