What do you see Mary? What does the world look like through your eyes?
How do you see pain, suffering, and loneliness? How do you see struggle and difficulty?
How did your life change from the experience of holding baby Jesus in your arms for the first time? Of God being so close, so weak, so vulnerable, so trusting?
What was it like to lose the love of your life- to be separated from Him for 3 days in Jerusalem? To wait in hope and prayer, desperately searching for your twelve year old son?
What was it for you, to see him grow in age, grace, and wisdom? To perform the first miracle at that wedding at Cana? To multiply the loaves and fishes? To raise the dead? To heal the sick?
How did you life change from that experience of accompanying Christ to the cross? From standing there, beneath His pierced, side, collecting the treasures of the Kingdom?
Mother, your journey with Christ shaped your vision. Let my vision be transformed by seeing life through your eyes.
