If you read this piece of writing, you’ll easily note my point as a Catholic. Yes, I’m about to write and share about Mother Mary and rosary.
As we all know, Catholic church respect Mother Mary as a Holy Queen as well as the mother of our saviour, Jesus Christ. And this week is very special for me, because I can learn a lot from other people – especially about their faith and their respect to Mother Mary.
One of best friend, Edwin, has been my sharing-buddy about Mother Mary. He had a nightmare a few weeks ago, in which he couldn’t breathe and felt as if someone was holding his hands in a rough way. He couldn’t move or scream. He decided to pray a prayer to Virgin Mary (also known as Hail Mary).
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
The reason why he decided to pray Hail Mary was because he believe in the power of Mother Mary. When we seek help from her, she will pray for us to Jesus. When Jesus hears His mother, He will surely ask His Father to come along and listens to our prayers. And .. Because they are the Holy Trinity, Holy Spirit will also come along and look after us. Isn’t awesome?
Beside Edwin, I also had a long chat with a missionary from the Philippines who also devote her time to do rosary and novena. She said that she has her vow to do rosary as her devotion and doing so at certain churches that devote itself to Mother Mary. Of course, we can do rosary at all times, no matter where.
I am also learning and reading about the rosary. On how each Hail Mary prayer represents one rose that we offer to Mother Mary. When we finish saying the whole rosary, we offer a full crown of rose to her. I’m excited to do say the rosary now and eager to share it others as well.
And last, this evening, I met one of my students who told me that she’s not a Catholic, but everytime she has problems (even her family) she will run to the grotto. I was like ‘WOW’.
I wish you all the best blessing from the Lord, Jesus Christ, who loved His mother dearly until He died on the cross for us.
Writing is my way to share it to you.
