God is with us… and so is his Mother!

This Christmas some of us will be without the presence of our mother, perhaps because she has died, or because she lives far away and is unable to travel; maybe because the bond is damaged and there has been a breakdown in our relationship; possibly because of imprisonment, maybe through sickness or as a result of a broken marriage between our parents; or for a variety of other reasons.

Somehow, the celebration of Christmas never seems to be Christmas without a mother present. How strange many of the Christmas cards and Nativity scenes would look without the Mother of Jesus present beside the manger, and only showing Joseph standing there with the wise men, the shepherds and the animals.

We know the name Emmanuel is translated as “God is with us”. And we accept that God is always present in our lives. But his Mother?

Well, have no doubt. She also is constantly with us. Always. She frequently tells us so in her messages from Medjugorje. Consider and appreciate these reassuring words that remind us that our Blessed Mother is always truly present in all of our lives.
