Every month is Mary’s month
Mary, the Mother of God is a perfect example
for all of us in carrying Jesus to others.
A reflection on Mary’s visit to her cousin Elizabeth
(Dr. Rowan Williams, Lourdes, September 2008)
Mary appears to us here as the first missionary,
the first human being to bring the Good News
of Jesus Christ to another;
and she does it simply
by carrying Christ within her.
She reminds us that mission begins
not in delivering a message in words
but in the journey towards another person
with Jesus in your heart.
Mary testifies to the primary importance
of simply carrying Jesus,
even before there are words or deeds
to show Him and explain Him.
