Mother of Our Creator, pray for us!

Previously we meditated on the invocations of Loreto Litany praising the mysteries of Virginal Mother, now we ponder the mysteries of Divine motherhood. This invocation says clearly that Mary's Son is the Son of God in accordance with Holy Scriptures testimony. Although the work of Creation is usually referred to God the Father, we know that each of the Three Persons of the Holy Trinity have the same power, will, wisdom and goodness and participated equally in the Creation. That is why the Evangelist says about the Son of God, the second Person of the Trinity: "All things were made by him: and without him was made nothing that was made. " (John 1:3). The Creator took His human nature from the Virgin Mary. St Peter Chrysologus exclaims in wonder: "Oh most Holy Mary, the Creator was born of you, from you came the source of all creation, God dwell in your womb!"
How powerful is the Immaculata! She can say to God: "You are my Child, and I am Your mother!" There we have a reason and explanation for over twenty Century long Catholics devotion to Mary. It is easy to understand why we pray to obtain through her mercy, grace, favours, consolation in sufferings, help in misery, forgiveness of sins, strength in temptation and happy death! Let us pray for her powerful and unfailing intercession for ourselves and for those in need - keeping in mind and heart what the Holy Catholic Church says through her: "He that shall find me, shall find life, and shall have salvation from the Lord, but he that shall sin against me, shall hurt his own soul. All that hate me love death. " (Proverbs 8:35)
