October is another month dedicated to Mary! Why so much concentration on Mother Mary? Because looking at Mary is seeing God in her. It’s like when you see a very kind and holy person, but you realize you aren’t looking at them so much as experiencing God’s love for you through them.
That’s Mary! Her fiat, her purpose, and her love for us and our love for her is all about God. This month that love is focused on the Holy Rosary. Through the Holy Rosary, we meditate on God’s Word. The Gospel becomes embedded in our hearts, and Mary holds our hand to Jesus Christ.
