I am with you always until the end of this world - Jesus (Matthew 28:20).

Preach the Word in season and out of season reproving, rebuking or advising always with patience and providing instructions (2 Timothy 4:2).

Do not fear, Mary, for God has looked kindly on you (Luke 1:30).

Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly. - G. K. Chesterton

My Reflection for June 8 Memorial of the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Luke 2:41-51

My Reflection:
An octogenarian mother was confined by her children to a home care facility. After two years she died, when her children were looking after her belonging. They found a daily journal that she wrote; it all contained her longing and prayers for her children and grandchildren.  

When Jesus went missing the most affected was the Blessed Mother. The anguish of Mary was very prominent in the gospel. Why is this so? This is for the reason that our mothers carried us in their wombs for nine months. They were already feeding us, taking care of us even while we were still in their wombs.

Like the feelings of the Blessed Mother, this is also the thoughts of all mothers they always keep close in their hearts their children. They always pray for them and they always have this longing for them. Sometimes we don't see this externally expressed. But  if we could only see what is in their hearts it’s always love, care and longing for their children. 

Let us give our love and care of our mothers as Jesus loved and cared for the Blessed Mother. ...
